Last week, Stellies added to Kaizer Chiefs' woes by beating them 1-0 in a PSL fixture and the side has impressed fans with their attractive style of football.

Despite the windy conditions, the team showed they could buckle down and defend by denying in-demand Sekhukhune United forward Elias Mokwana any gaps.

According to their website, Barker said he was impressed with how Chiefs adapted to the conditions and was glad they came away with at least a point.

“I am a little bit disappointed because were maybe a little bit unlucky not to get maximum points, but I am also pleased that we didn’t concede. The players showed a different side to themselves, rolled their sleeves up, and played a different brand of football to what we normally would like to play, but the conditions forced us.”

Local football fans fear Stellies

While Stellies enjoy a great season, their achievements have not gone unnoticed as several fans are starting to admire the club.

Gage Meyiwa applauded the club:

"Unbelievable stuff, but you will hear some fans say Sundowns win because they buy quality players. Stellies is showing everyone that when you have a plan and execute it well, you will achieve good results in football. One trophy already and on course to qualify for continental football."

Pherekoane Koena says Stellies must be feared:

"Wow, impressive. I remember during the Nedbank draw, I was praying we wouldn't meet them. But otherwise, wait until they meet the mighty Downs. The winning record shall end there."

Sebothoma Solomon gives Barker high praise:

"Coach Barker is the second best after the masterclass of coach Rulani."

Bra T Nkgabane says Barker is the top coach in the league:
