Margerman out to become the long-range goal king

He has set himself a target of lashing in seven goals this term. Margerman also feels that having a crack from distance might help him get it done.

“I believe I have just started with this kind of goals. I am confident I will score more long-range goals. At the start of the season I set myself a target of scoring at least seven goals. I think I am on the right track,”’ Margeman told Sowetan LIVE.

Next up is a clash with middling Sekhukhune United, however, Margerman is wary of the threat the club pose.

“Sekhukhune did very well against Pirates and they are coming at us motivated. We are also oozing confidence after beating Royal convincingly, so I believe both teams will be aiming to continue with great form. This means it will also be an interesting game. Our aim is to keep momentum and consistency…we can’t win one game and lose the following if we are to achieve our goal to finish in the top four,” Margeman stated.

SuperSport United vs Sekhkhune United kicks off at the Lucas Moripe Stadium at 19:30 on Friday 7 October 2022.
