Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila coach Joel Masutha says he's concerned by the club's poor form this season.

Masutha was installed as head coach at TTM ahead of their debut Premiership campaign.

They have so far managed just one win, over Baroka in November 2020 and last suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Kaizer Chiefs.

They are currently level on nine points with both Black Leopards and Martizburg United and are only three adrift of AmaZulu in tenth place, meaning there is still plenty of time for TTM to recover their season.

It remains to be seen just how much time Masutha will be given, and ahead of facing third-placed SuperSport United on Sunday, the TTM boss admitted too many mistakes are having an effect on his side.

He also explained a lack of consistency is also playing a negative role.

Masutha told SuperSport: "It is a big concern looking at what happened in 2020 where we played seven games, and lost just one – with one win and five draws.

"Things were better then (in 2020), but now we are also missing some players for various reasons. We are trying.

"But every match or every week, we are bringing in players, and you need consistency. You need to work on a certain combination for the team to be effective, especially when it comes to games.

"We will soldier on, and we will try to rectify it.

"The players want to do a lot. They want to turn the corner so much that sometimes they end up making those mistakes, and it also affects them here and there."
