Williams concedes defeat in time race
SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams believes the club's inconsistency cost them a chance to battle for the Premiership title this season.
Matsatsansa looked like they were in the hunt up until as recently as a month or so ago. However, they have lost their last three league games in a row, all 1-0, including shock defeats to Stellenbosh FC and Golden Arrows.
When asked if he felt there was any way SuperSport could fight their way back into the title race, Williams replied: "No, not at this moment."
"It's the same old story; the same problem – we beat Pirates; we beat Chiefs; we beat the top teams but struggle against lower teams," said Williams.
"At the beginning of the season, we set goal for ourselves to obviously win a cup, but the main objective was the league, and we know we threw it away now.
"Our last three league games, we've lost three on the bounce and that's unlike SuperSport to do that, but it's the same old story – it's the mentality.
"We've tried and we've spoken about it, but we need to change our mentality. When we play the top teams, the guys are more motivated, and the lower teams then see us as a top team and elevate themselves.
"So, we need to be like a top team, take a leaf from Sundowns' book and demolish these team, not making it easy and showing them that there's a reason that they're down there and not at our level.
"That's the mentality we need to get back into the team; it's the mentality we had when Daine Klate and Gavin Hunt was here; when they won titles, they didn't care about any team and would win 1-0, take it and go home. That's not what we have now."
