FC Tygerberg defender Aaron Erasmus spoke exclusively to CapeTownFootball about the teams struggles this season, and their upcoming match against ASD Cape Town
ABC Motsepe League strugglers FC Tygerberg are looking to gain momentum this weekend following their 6-1 humiliation of Moonlight FC.
That impressive result marked FC Tygerberg’s second win for the season, and first home victory, with 17 league matches being played.
However, 22-year-old defender Aaron Erasmus believes his somewhat inexperienced side has finally turned the corner.
It felt great to win because we’ve been working hard to get the home win. There’s been games at home that we felt we should have won, but the results didn’t go our way,” Erasmus told CapeTownFootball.
“The camp is feeling confident right now and we believe that this is just the first of many to come.
“I believe we have (turned the corner), we are working hard on training and you can sense the guys are giving their all. We think we can go on to win another two or three in a row.
“We’ve changed our team a lot and we have a lot of new faces this season. It’s always hard to accommodate the new players, to get an understanding and getting the team spirit going.
“We still have a very young team, so are just building,” he added.
FC Tygerberg will travel to the UCT Sports Ground this evening where they will take on a tough ASD Cape Town side.
“It’s going to be a harder task than the last game, ASD is a very good team and have a good experienced team,” he told CapeTownFootball.
“So it’s going to be a tough game, but hopefully we can do enough to get the three points,” he concluded.
