Although the Liberian skipper is yet to pick up his customary scoring form usually exhibited in the South African league, Laffor has just managed the minority of the club goals for now but has been providing lots of assistant that had resulted into goals for the club.

SuperSport United unbeaten record in the South African premiership remain in point despite receiving a 1-0 home disgrace in the Telkom Cup last week from first Division side. SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt is full of praise for his players after what he termed an impressive performance against Santos in their League game on Tuesday.

United maintained their winning streak to beat Santos 1-0 to go four points clear of the chasing pack at the top of the log, having collected 24 points from 10 games played. Despite the slender victory against the People’s Team, Untied Coach Hunt says his side deserved the three points. “It was a tough and hard fought victory.

I think my players were good tonight (Tuesday) and everybody worked his socks off.  “It’s now 10 games gone and 20 left which is still a long way to go, We just have to keep fighting in each and every game and make sure that at least when we go for the long break in December, we will still be on top of the log.”  SuperSport have a daunting task ahead of them as they face all the teams that finished in the top four positions last season in their next four League games. 

They travel to Cape Town to face Ajax Cape Town in their next game on November 18 before hosting Kaizer Chiefs at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on November 30. 

After the Amakhosi game, SuperSport travel to Soweto three days later to face Orlando Pirates at Orlando Stadium and then Mamelodi Sundown’s at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on December 16.

However, Hunt remains unfazed about the tough challenge awaiting his team in the next six weeks. “We can’t choose the games and playing against any team in the League is very tough. It’s going to be a big challenge but we will get on with it and plan for each game properly,” he says.
