This is one match where credit must definitely go to our players who executed our game plan with great professionalism.
Each role was carried out effectively and we therefore gave a very disciplined team performance. We did very well to deny Sundowns attacking trio “CBD” any space behind our defensive line. We also closed down the channels very well where they are dangerous with their diagonal balls.
Our defensive organization looked solid throughout with great support from our midfielders who played their part in the team maintaining its defensive shape. Once again, we let ourselves down as we were not clinical enough when opportunities presented themselves to us on the counter and break attacks.
We had more chances created and more penalty area entries in the 90 minutes than our opponents. If we continue to perform in this manner, we can strongly push for a top 8 finish. In order for us to achieve this, we need to start winning our home games, starting with a very strong Platinum Stars team.
The confidence in the camp is high as we have picked up 4 out of 6 points in our last two matches which have both been away from home. Special mention must be made to Mbaeva, Bilankulu, Katjiukua, Cele and Shitolo who have been playing with a high level of consistency.
I would also like to thank our management, technical team and entire backroom staff for their continuous support.
