We were playing a good opponent who unfortunately had not been getting results even though playing good fast paced football. We needed to deny them the space in wide areas and also control their two holding midfielders. Our defensive structure was very solid and only needed us to connect well after regaining possession. We had a good chance to take the lead when Sibisi missed a header. The opponent had very little chance to get behind our defense. Our midfield worked extremely hard to protect the defence and we went to half time at 0:0.

The second continued in the same way except more clarity given at half time regarding the second layer of attack positioning. We also didn’t take full advantage of the free kicks we got. We had yet another opportunity to take the lead when we successfully came out and Phiri crosses for Sibiya who wasted the opportunity to finish a swift counter attacking move. A few changes that were made were purely to freshen the team because structurally, we looked very good throughout the match. At the end the match was drawn 0:0 even though we had the better chances. Our next opponent is Amazulu in 14 days.
