Spencer shows faith in his Kings

Eastern Province Kings Head Coach, Carlos Spencer has made one change to his match day 22 to face the Xerox Lions at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Spencer has shown faith in his side that lost 35 – 16 to Western Province at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Friday night.

Steven Sykes comes in on the bench to replace Darron Nell in the no18 jersey. Spencer explained the reason for Sykes missing the opener was due to a lack of game time, as a foot injury early in the pre season has limited him to only 40 minutes on the field in the last 3 months.

Spencer said the team was looking forward to the game against the Lions on Saturday.

“They are probably not as physical (as Western Province) but they’re more of ball players and their work rate is high. They get around the pitch, not only defensively but with ball in hand as well,” he said.

Spencer also said he wasn’t disappointed in the team following last week’s defeat by DHL Western Province.

“I believe anyone can beat anyone on the day. I believe some of them had first day game jitters last week, so hopefully they have gotten those out of the way, that is why we have decided to stick to the same starting fifteen and haven’t made any changes.”

“We’re showing our faith and our confidence in this group to do the job this week,” he said.
