Following their MTN8 Cup glory over the weekend, SuperSport United coach Eric Tinkler has warned his men against complacency.

Tinkler led the Tshwane side to their first trophy under his guidance as they beat his former team in Cape Town City on Saturday.

After the match, the former Bafana Bafana midfielder said he wants to lift more trophies as they will visit Club Africain on Sunday.

The South African Premier Soccer League giants will hope to bag a win in Tunisia and reach the CAF Confederation Cup final.

"Being the type of the person I am‚ I want more," Tinkler said after the game. "We have another massive game coming up at the weekend and I want us to win it so that we can get to another final.

"Winning trophies must become an addiction and a drug for us. That's where you measure yourself against the best.

"We had a lot of faith in our goalkeeper Ronwen (Williams) and we had practiced taking penalties during the week. Ronwen was brilliant in saving those penalties.

"We'll also have to assess all the players who had bruises and injuries in this final. It does worry me because we don't have a big squad. But it's very difficult to sit down and evaluate the situation now."
