Stellenbosch boss Steve Barker has challenged his manne to build back better after their unbeaten start to the PSL came to an end this week.
Wednesday’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Orlando Pirates was their first loss in 12 games this season and stretched their winless run to three games.
Despite the Bolanders still up in second place on the log, they will have to up their game and ahead of Sunday’s trip to Royal AM, who can leapfrog them with a victory.
And Barker warns that they have to move on quickly.
He said after the defeat: “It was a bit of a reality check.
“We were naive in some situations, so it’s back to the drawing board with a big game on Sunday.
“These runs come to an end. We have to take this on the chin, move on and start a new run.”
