Brave Warriors captain Ronald Ketjiere has confidence after his club University of Pretoria lost 1-0 to National First Division Mbombela United in the playoff of the Absa Premiership on Sunday afternoon.
Ketjiere, who captains AmaTuks, said the team must "keep their heads up" following a disappointing 1-0 home loss to Mbombela United.
