University of Pretoria forward Ian Chikohwa believes Shaun Bartlett’s experience in the National First Division will help the club return to the Absa Premiership.

AmaTuks will play in the NFD in the coming season after getting relegated last season.

Chikohwa, who joined the Pretoria based team last season from the NedBank Cup Ke Yona Team, says they can bounce back from the NFD.

“We have a young squad, we all have the same goal which is promotion and we have a good coach. He has done it before with Golden Arrows, so we are focusing on becoming a good team this season,” Chikohwa told SABC Sport.
