AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee says his team will return to training to work on their finishing, after they missed several chances in the 2-0 Telkom Knockout loss to Free State Stars.
Usuthu bowed out of the competition on Saturday afternoon and return to the training field with plenty of time to work on their game, given the upcoming international break.
“I thought the two goals Free State Stars scored deserved to win them the game. You saw in the last fifteen minutes we had about five chances to score and we couldn’t finish one of them,” Rosslee said of the game.
“We defended pretty poorly and this took its toll in the second half. We had two lapses in defence and two great finishes from Stars won them the game. Overall we defended poorly.”
Rosslee believes his side need to learn from their mistakes and that this will be the focus of their training over the near future.
“I am more disappointed in how you lose. For me we did not put ourselves about today (against FS Stars). You have to go out there and perform if you want to win a game. You don’t just win a game without doing this.
“We need to go back and work on the aspects of our finishing because that was missing today. We’ll take the negatives and learn from them.”
Asked about the challenge of a long break until their next official match, Rosslee said: “The break affects all the teams but this is the nature of the beast.
“We are not the only ones with this challenge so now we just need to use the time to work on our things.”Share
