Chippa United coach Rulani Mokwena says he is using the lockdown to educate himself on his side's past games.

Mokwena joined the Chilli Boys from Orlando Pirates where he was assistant manager for the Sowetan giants.

He was in charge of just one Absa Premiership encounter - a goalless draw away to Bidvest Wits - before all sporting activities were suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There is still no date as to when the Premiership may resume but Mokwena is preparing himself, nonetheless.

He told the SowetanLIVE: "It has given us time to study all the Chippa United games from the beginning of the season.

"We have studied all the players and their data‚ we have done one-on-ones with them and told them about their contributions to the club.

"Now we are working on analysing the opposition‚ we are preparing for the remaining six games (in the season that was suspended in March).

"I have already watched the videos of Highlands Park‚ we have watched five games of Cape Town City‚ we have watched six games of Kaizer Chiefs.

"There is still a bit to be done but we are doing our homework."

Mokwena explained that he is in lockdown with his technical team.

"We are staying together and it’s a football-mad house‚" he said.

"We are watching seminars and we are learning different things from top coaches around the world.

"We are studying Chippa United and we are trying to find new ways in terms of using technology."
