“It was a very tough match for both sides. Both teams didn’t create as many chances and it was very closely contested,” said van Wyk.
“I think this match showed our defensive prowess even though we didn’t score the goals. It’s always reassuring to know that defensively we are sound and then we can build from there. It was also good to see players make their debut like Kgaelebane Mohlakoana so that was definitely a positive.
“We are looking forward to our next match. For us, it’s about maintaining our defensive shape and hopefully this time we will get the goals,” concluded the skipper.
