A match of two halves where in the first half we played with dominance and created sufficient chances but failed to utilize them.

We managed to pull one goal on the 23rd minute when Lunga made an underlapping run and beat his defender, played a cut back to Mutizwa who was running near post and he took the chance to make it 0:1. The rest of the remaining first half was played with fluidity and chances were created but we failed to convert.

Ndwandwe played his first match after a long period (9 months to be precise) and had a good game. He had a great run into the box, dribbling his way through and only needed to pass the net when the defender made a last minute interception.

The second didn’t start well. The opponent started pressing high and we needed the right levels of arrogance to impose our game model. The opponent had a slight edge and started putting us under pressure which we finally succumbed to when they scored the equalizer on the 70th minute.

The subs we made did not give us the necessary injection instead they struggled to cope with the tempo of the match. There are areas we need to work more on defensively and among many are defending higher than too deep, dealing with diagonal balls to fullbacks so as to avoid crosses.

Almost all the goals we’ve conceded had come predominantly from crosses and we lacked dominance in dealing with such crosses inside the box. Another positive is that we’ve been scoring in all the matches we played.
