Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler is ‘massively concerned’ about his side’s form heading into the final weeks of the season.

Tinkler’s charges have not won in their last nine DStv Premiership matches, and have slipped down the standings to seventh, with six games to play.

City were most recently held to a 2-2 draw with Polokwane City and are next in action against ninth-placed Golden Arrows, who could jump ahead of Tinkler’s team with all three points.

Reflecting on their dip in form, a concerned Tinkler said in the Sowetan: “Massive concern. Obviously, it is a concern. We are a very ambitious club that wants to achieve things.

“Now, we have to go back and look at our next game against Golden Arrows. But the efforts against Polokwane City in our last game were much better. It was something I wanted to see from the players they put in the effort, some of the games they haven’t.”

City have been leaking goals since the turn of the year, and Tinkler is working hard to ensure they end their season on a high.

“We just have to keep on grinding and what we do at training, that’s all. All I can do is go back to training and repeat everything we have been doing, especially the offensive phase of our game,” he continued.

“Defensively, fix the errors that we have been making. There is not much more I can do because my job is to tactically prepare the players.”
