A good and crucial victory for the club and a confidence boost for the team going forward.
The team applied itself very well in the first half, a solid and clear structure, good ball retention, even though there’s still a lot of work to be done. We maintained good attacking shape and were well organized in defense, managing the match phases precisely.
Our structured attack culminated in an early lead when Venter picked Mutizwa inside the box to give us a 1:0 lead through a perfectly placed header. The Midfield and defence had good structure and from the structure another opportunity but Mutizwa failed to make it count.
We had to wait for the start of the second half after Moreira replaced Mutizwa who got injured in the first half. He combined well with Lamola to make it 2:0.
Deep in the second half we suffered a red card when Jooste got sent off for a reckless tackle. We had to change the team shape and manage the match for the remaining 30 minutes of the match.
We did what was required then and maintained great tactical shape in defense and had to show resilience and mental strength to win the match. The match ended 2:0 in our favor.
