AmaZulu coach Steve Barker is a bit disappointed in his team’s performance in the goalless draw with Platinum Stars on Wednesday night at the Princess Magogo Stadium.
Barker said he felt that his team did not give it their all, especially playing at home. But he says that he can’t really point to what exactly went wrong.
“It was a dog fight between two teams that needed points. I am not sure if it was the two week break, but we just did not give it our all.
“I am a bit disappointed because most of the game was played on their half. Once again players showed that they can still fight and you might never know how far this point could go at the end of the season,” said Barker.
Barker said he knew that the last four matches were not going to be easy and they are not playing in a perfect world.
“It’s not a perfect world and I knew that it was not going to be easy. There are three games to go. We are still positive that we can still escape the relegation zone and shall we find ourselves there, I am sure we will bounce back,” he said.
With three more games to go, Barker said he will be happy to finish on 32 or 33 points.
“My target is 32 or 33 points, I think that would be enough to save us from the relegation zone and we are battling with Swallows. We need to lift ourselves up on the Saturday match and also give some non regular players a chance to play,” he said.Share
