We knew it was going to be a tricky match. It needed a sober mind and clear thinking. We started very well and scored two goals on transition from Mutizwa to make it 2:0.
The opponent tried to sit in a block but we managed to unlock them by playing over the top using our speed in attack. There was little problems in the first half and went to half time leading 2:0, playing a good possession and pressing game.
The second half started and we still kept our structure. The opponent introduced another striker with aerial prowess and we decided to add a central defender. It was at that moment of switch when we lost concentration and conceded the first goal to be 2:1.
We could not settle and a long diagonal ball in the center of the defense was missed by the keeper and the striker (Moon) scored their second goal to make it 2:2.
We had committed two basic errors and surrendered our lead. We then changed and played 3:3:4 to chase the game. We played our usual possession and attacking football, created a few more chances but lacked the killer instinct.
We drew the match 2:2 and dropped 2 valuable points. One of the key areas to improve with our team is a better mindset and also attitude of remaining respectful throughout the match till we win.
Our next assignment is in two days against KAIZER Chiefs in Johannesburg on Tuesday.
