Usuthu Head Coach, Joey Antipas has elected not to put too much weight into fault finding in the unlucky home slip up at the hands of Stellebosch FC on Sunday afternoon at Princess Magogo Stadium.

“I can’t blame the players much, they did everything to win the game. I thought we should have won this game and picked up maximum points”

“We deserved to pick up maximum points but unfortunately, the gods must be crazy for us to lose a game like this after missing two penalties and creating enough chances to win the game,” said Antipas.
It was Junaid Sait’s 59th minute rightfooted goal that pierced through the Usuthu faithful hearts after AmaZulu had created the better chances of the match in front of an expectant KwaMashu crowd.

“One mistake, and they had one chance and they buried it, it’s hard to take but it’s part of the game. What you need to do is learn from it. At least we deserved a point but it’s not even a point,” he added.

The 57 year old Zimbabwean tactician however took courage from the fact that they have the chance to turn things around against Witbank Spurs on Wednesday when they meet at the Puma Rugby Stadium amid murmurs of panic at the glance of the latest NFD log standings.

“We just have to once again instil the belief in the players that they can do it, because one thing for sure I know that they can.”

“All fans around the world are demanding, they want results. We just have to get our act together and come up with the results to try and appease ourselves and the fans,” he said.
