Hunt - We are even more balanced

Moroka Swallows coach Gavin Hunt is confident that his side's 'balance' will help them a great deal when they take on Silver Stars in the SAA Supa 8 quarterfinal at the Germiston Stadium on Sunday, August 20.

Swallows won the 'Perfectly Balanced Team of the Season' Award at the end of the 2005/06 PSL Castle Premiership season.

"We have signed good players , which makes us an even more balanced team this season," Hunt told the SAA Supa 8 Coaches press conference in Johannesburg on Thursday.

"We certainly hope that this will reflect well on our performance going into this important match against Stars on Sunday."

Speaking about some of the new signings, Hunt said that each player will fill a specific role in the squad.

"Jethro Mohlala is a very decent left-back who, I believe will add a lot to the team, the same goes for Bevan Fransman and 'keeper Aubrey Mathibe," the former Black Leopards coach added.

Meanwhile, Stars coach Owen Da Gama - whose side conducted preseason training at the unfamiliar Skukuza in the Kruger National Park - said that the match represents an opportunity for the North West-based side to see how well the new players had integrated.

The match kicks-off at 15.15 and tickets are available at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers.
