Maritzburg United coach Fadlu Davids says his side’s three remaining league games before the Christmas break are critical for their Absa Premiership survival.
The 37-year-old coach‚ the youngest in the Premier Soccer League (PSL)‚ saw his team earn its sixth draw in 11 matches against Orlando Pirates (0-0) at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
The point gained in Orlando did not help Davids’ team that much as they remain one point clear of basement side Black Leopards.
“We set ourselves a target of a certain number of points we want‚” said Davids.
“We wanted 18 points in at least 14 games and we will push for that in the nine points left before the end of this year.”
Maritzburg will have to start fighting for those points at home against Leopards on December 12 before wrapping up the year with two league fixtures away to SuperSport United on December 15 and at home against Baroka FC on December 22.
