Mekoa: We’re Deadly On The Counter
Deolin Mekoa Wants Maritzburg To Bounce Back From Kaizer Chiefs Defeat
Maritzburg United man, Deolin Mekoa, says they want to bounce back from their defeat to Kaizer Chiefs when they take on Free State Stars.
The Team of Choice lost only three of their last 15 games under the tutelage of Fadlu Davids, and with five games played they find themselves sitting inside the Absa Premiership’s top six.
Davids’ side put in a good performance against the Amakhosi in their last outing, however, things didn’t go their way and they missed a penalty in a 2-0 defeat at Harry Gwala Stadium.
Now, with his team looking to get back to winning ways, the 24-year-old thinks that they’ll keep learning.
He told Maritzburg’s official website, “I’m not disappointed, you could see how the guys were pushing in the second half, but unfortunately we couldn’t score against Chiefs.
“These things happen in football. We tried, we pushed, everyone did their best. For the next game, we’ll just have to increase our efforts even more so we can stay on top. I think we’re playing good football and I’m happy with the team.
“We’ll learn and take it to our next game against Free State Stars. We’ll watch their games and see their strengths and weaknesses. But we’ll also play our own game I’m sure. We’re deadly on the counter.”
The Team of Choice host Ea Lla Koto at Harry Gwala at 20h00 on Friday evening.
