Interim Bafana Bafana coach Steve Komphela has asked for patience and support for the team as they resume their 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifying campaign.

"The players we have in camp, who are soldiers, need your support," Komphela said on Tuesday.

"We have to accept and support. It's the only way."

Komphela will guide South Africa in their next two matches after former head coach Pitso Mosimane was fired on Tuesday morning.

Bafana play Botswana in a World Cup qualifier in Gaborone on Saturday and they face Gabon in an international friendly later this month.

They drew 1-1 against Ethiopia in Phokeng on Sunday -- a result that led to Mosimane's departure after seven straight matches without a win.
