AmaZulu captain Tapuwa Kapini was happy to keep a clean against Bidvest Wits on Tuesday night amid concerns of the goal keeper passing out for five minutes during the match.
The Zimbabwean international was taken to hospital after the match told AmaZulufc.net that gathering the full points at home will sit well with the Usuthu faithful.
“I think we can now look forward to more wins, especially at home for our fans. This was also good, I think ahead of the cup tie our supporters who came to watch us tonight.
Wits came out firing in the second half but we kept a clean sheet,” said Kapini.
A brave Kapini soldiered on after collapsing with a Wits body which aroused concerns on the skipper’s health following a world wide football nervous moment that saw Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba withdrawn from an English Premiership match following a heart failure.
Head coach Roger Pamlgren had this to say: “I think Wits had more ball possession, they had an area where they put us under in a lot pressure.
But we created a lot of chances, I was always concerned about that but of course the game is very simple you have to take your chances. If you don’t you’re never going to win. We got two and put them in the net even though we missed some.
It was a worry, the ball possession they had in our half,” said Palmgren.
The Swedish coach also said he will maintain his match to match strategy and cited the importance of staying above the bottom half as of much more significance than garnering for the much talked about utopia of reaching the top 8.
