Bafana coach Hugo Broos feels his team is well placed to secure a win from the World Cup qualifier with Zimbabwe on Tuesday.

South Africa come into this game on the back of a credible 1-1 draw with Nigeria.

There was no separating the two sides in Uyo on Friday as Themba Zwane’s superb first half strike at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium was cancelled out by an early second-half goal from Fisayo Dele-Bashiru.

With his side near fully fit, with only a small concern surrounding the fitness of Percy Tau, Broos is adamant that his team will secure all three points in front of their home support, at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein.

Bafana are currently in fourth place in Group C with four points from three games, while Zimbabwe are in sixth and last place with two points.

Broos said: “It won’t be easy. Zimbabwe lost 2-0 against Lesotho, but the first goal was not a chance. It was the goalkeeper’s mistake. The second was a nice goal and they had another chance. For the rest, it was Zimbabwe who were the better team.

“They’re a tough team. Always difficult for South Africa to play against Zimbabwe, so it will not be different. But I’m happy my players will be [rested]. They will not be exhausted anymore. We will physically 100 percent.

“There are no injuries. Maybe a little doubt on Percy (Tau), but there will be no problem for the game, so we have to win it. I will not be happy if we don’t win it.”

Broos added: “What I heard about Bloemfontein makes me happy. They tell me that there will be many, many supporters in the stadium. It will be the first time we’re playing in front of so many supporters, so that’s extra motivation.”
