Arendse wants maximum points!
Dec 3rd, 2014 - 13:04
Santos Captain Tyren Arendse is targeting maximum points from his side's final three games of 2014 which just happen to be three eagerly awaited Cape Town derbies.

The People's Team are coming off the back of two disappointing losses, at home to Highlands Park and away to Baroka FC, and are keen to get back to winning ways, starting with Milano United at Philippi Stadium on Friday night, kick-off 19:30.

Speaking to thepeoplesteam.co.za on Wednesday, the former Orlando Pirates midfielder said: "The Baroka game was very disappointing for us as the result could have been massively different had we taken our chances; so we need to improve our game going forward.

"We’ve got nine more points to play for before the end of the year, so we need to make sure we take maximum points."

He added: "It will be tough since it's three derby matches and we will need to raise our game for the occasion - starting with Milano on Friday.

"This should be an interesting game as we will be coming up against some former players, but it will come down to whoever is up for it on the night."

Amongst the Milano ranks are a number of former Santos players, including Nasief Morris, Ricardo Skippers, Deniro Stanley as well as Lee Langeveldt, and the experienced campaigner knows his team will need to be a bit cleverer than their opponents if they are to make their way up the National First Division standings.

Santos are currently in ninth place with 17 points from 13 games played while Milano are in second place with 24 points.

Arendse added: "When teams play against us it always seems as if they raise their game and play with heart, but Coach Abrahams always says your football intelligence in tight games will see you through, so we will need to be smarter than our opponents, especially in derbies that can go either way.

"We need to get a good run going to stay in touch with the front runners and a positive result will help in terms of our targets.

"But either way this will be a nice game for the supporters!"
