Going into our 1st KZN derby vs Royal Eagles was always going to be a tough game.
We started the game really well by applying pressure in the right areas and even created a few clear opportunities to score.
Eagles had the upper hand in stages throughout the 1st half and that was expected as the home team they had to come with a more attacking approach.
Against the run of play we created the goal that we needed going into half time.
Playing against 10 players always seems to be harder than 11 as they had nothing to lose but keep playing their style of football.
Conceding from a set play, which in my opinion never was a free kick, was difficult to accept as we constantly train these things and a lapse of concentration cost us again.
Was a draw a fair result in the end? That is a question we can only answer come the end of the season when we look at the tally of points.
We have 2 more games against Vasco and Thanda in the next 6 days where we can bounce from the Eagles result, and that is the beauty of football.
Still proud of my players and the supporters that came out to Umlazi yesterday to support us.
Thanks and see you at the Thanda game next week.
