It’s not very often that we can say well done to our boys after loosing a match by 4 goals to 1, but that’s exactly what we said to the boys after the game.
We went into this game without Bilankulu, Cele, Mngwengwe, Arwuah, Molefe, but still managed to put in a sterling performance, thanks largely to the efforts of some of our younger players. Ngcobo & Hlongwani who did well as did Sibiya & Sibeko, coming off the bench. Our young players have brought a breath of fresh air to the club especially during this trying period where results have not been forthcoming.
We were punished by an in-form Orlando Pirates for making crucial mistakes in critical areas. All four goals conceded were a result of making four individual errors defensively. These are hard lessons for our young players to learn but we are sure that they will.
We dominated the 2nd half before & after Masalesa’s red card. We hit the upright & created several other opportunities & could easily have equalized had we taken our chances.
There are many positives to take away from this game as we prepare for what is ‘our cup final’ against Maritzburg on Wednesday.
