Brandon Truter faces nervous wait over Sekhukhune United future

Sekhukhune United coach Brandon Truter admits he faces an uncertain future following his side’s difficult start to the current DStv Premiership season.

Babina Noko are down in 11th place on the league standings with just three wins from their opening 10 games.

But despite their league struggles, the club have been successful in the CAF Confederation Cup – securing their place in the group stage – alongside a 1-0 win over Royal AM in the first round of the Carling Knockout Cup.

They haven’t won in the South African top-flight since overcoming Royal AM 1-0 in September, and next face Orlando Pirates in the league, after a cup quarter-final with TS Galaxy – who they lost to most recently in the Premiership on Sunday.

Goals from Kamogelo Sebelebele (13′) and Samir Nurkovic (80′) secured a 2-0 win at the Mbombela Stadium.

Speaking after the game, Truter said in the Sowetan he is unsure of his position.

He said: “I haven’t seen anything official yet. I’ve not spoken to anybody at the club.

“It’s a tough one to answer, especially with results yesterday [Sunday] and you say now there are reports online and I haven’t heard anything yet. So, it’s a bit tough commenting now.

“We finished top eight last season. We reached the Nedbank Cup final and CAF Confederation Cup group stages. We will see what will happen, let me check.”
