Usuthu Diski Coach, Ronnie Moroka says the boys in green and white will get it right this season despite getting their campaign off to a losing start after going down 2-1 against Orlando Pirates on 09 September.
According to the Youth Technical Advisor throngs of football supporters would concur that Usuthu put up a brave fight at home in Clermont’s Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
“The positives for are that we must play all the time, at the highest tempo. We must also train at the highest tempo. I’m happy about everything. The only thing that I’m not happy about is that we lost because we want to make our supporters happy.
“I’m happy we created more chances then them (Orlando Pirates) in my opinion or maybe as everyone would’ve seen. They also created a couple of chances but the chances that we created should have been enough to ensure wrapping up the game. But for us the core goal is all about producing players for the first team and we’ll get it right,” said Moroka.
There were a few nervy moments in the opening stage of the game for the home side in a team comprising of as many as seven novices stepping into the starting line-up.
“In the first ten minutes they were all over us. They played the 3-5-2, we expected them to play 4-2-3-1 but we did touch on the 3-5-2 (in our preparation). For the better part of the first half we were sorting our organization, and mind you with some of our boys it was for the first for them to play in such a stage as this.”
“They were unsettled a bit, but as the game went on they started getting settled. I’m happy with the way all our boys played. Congratulations to Pirates as well because they played very well,” said the 49 year old Coach.
