Our second game away on the trot was going to be testing after only managing a draw against Warriors in our previous game, as well as Cape based sides being more physical and direct in their playing style.

Again, we struggled with our first half performance, we never seemed to find rhythm or momentum and indifferent performances from some of our players compounded the situation. Half time breaks for coaches are always welcomed, as it provides us an opportunity to rectify any first half mistakes as well as re-organise the team for the remainder of the game.

We started the second half better and managed to put Santos under pressure early on, however not being able to convert our chances was again an issue and this allowed them to stay in the game. We eventually managed to create a chance through an unlikely penalty which Zukile Mkhize converted with great ease.

The last 15 minutes was frantic as the pressure increased, and we had to deal with a lot of long throws and free kicks into our box. With the last action of the game, Santos eaqualised through a long throw which we never dealt with properly and ended up conceding and allowing the draw.

A massive game versus Cosmos is waiting for us on Saturday at Chatsworth and we trust we get the maximum points to regain top spot with the help of our supporters.
