This was a very unique performance by the team and a strange result. We struggled to deal with SS UTD two wingers in Modiba and Rusike dropping into the half spaces and cheating or not tracking back.
This created problems for our midfield and on several occasions we suffered counter attacks because we couldn’t finish our attacks successfully nor counter pressed effectively and as a result we allowed SS UTD to play easily on counter attacks.
We conceded two goals in two minutes because we failed to stop the crosses into the box. The crosses were played in our central zone. We then immediately made a sub where we introduced Bilankulu at the centre of defence and we were immediately settled.
We went on but lost the first half 2:0. The second half was completely different.
We dominated in attack right from the beginning and missed a great chance when Lunga made a brilliant cross. We had a lot of attacks and we scored two goals to make it 2:2. We kept probing and attacking for the whole second half and the opponent couldn’t react.
We unfortunately suffered a blow when the opponent scored the third goal deep into stoppage time to make it 3:2. The goal was a superb strike from outside the box. We then suffered our first defeat. A good and much improved performance in the second half but unfortunately could not score enough to win the match.
