Barker moots squad rotation as Stellies feel heat

“We still have seven to play [in the league] and another Nedbank Cup game [a semifinal against Mamelodi Sundowns at home in two weeks’ time], hopefully two Nedbank Cup games [if they reach the final]. It’s been a demanding season that we haven’t had…it’s just about managing the situation well with a little bit of rotations when required.”

Amid their congested programme, Barker feels his players are also starting to suffer from fatigue, referencing that to  the last few minutes of their game against Polokwane, where they surrendered their lead in the 86th minute to eventually draw. Even so, the Stellies mentor welcomed the point, eyeing three against Galaxy.

“It was our second game in a four-day period. I thought we looked a little bit fatigued there in the last 15, 20  minutes. It was a matter of trying to hold out until the end but unfortunately we didn’t.
