As anticipated this match was a very heated affair as both teams were desperate for 3 points,adding to the fact that this was a derby. We were happy with the first half performance as well as the tactical execution of our game plan
We neutralised their wide players and kept their most influential player Lentjies quiet in the first half resulting in us dominating play and creating chances. We had many chances to go 2 or 3 nil up but failed to convert any. We knew they would come at us even after going a man down so we needed to be disciplined and importantly needed to play with more composure.
The lack of composure was evident in the 2nd half as we failed to settle into any type of rhythm. We were punished when leaving the ever dangerous Lentjies free whilst on the attack,something we had discussed pre-match.
We dropped two valuable points but in saying so are once again happy with the fighting spirit and commitment shown by our players. Mbaeva,Sibeko,Hlongwane and Sibiya were our outstanding players on the night.
