It would be amazing to finish in the top four, says Stellenbosch FC coach Steve Barker

Cape Town — Stellenbosch FC coach Steve Barker believes his team have enjoyed “an amazing season” regardless of what may still transpire in the Dstv Premiership.

Stellies finished their 2021/22 campaign on a high with a last-gasp 1-0 victory over neighbours Cape Town City at the Danie Craven Stadium on Saturday to propel the club to a record 47 points. On the current log, Stellies are placed third but they face an anxious wait to see whether they will indeed qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup due to Royal AM (5th) and Orlando Pirates (7th) still having two and three matches respectively left to complete.

Royal AM can potentially finish on 51 points, while Pirates can get up to 49 points.

"It puts us in a massive position," Stellenbosch FC coach Steve Barker said after the match. "Hearing the results from the other teams, I realised how big a win would be for us.

“Obviously other teams still have to play, but [even] if we can finish in the top four, it would really be an amazing season for us."
