MTN8 2018

Davids: It Wasn't Meant To Be

Maritzburg United head coach Fadlu Davids says it wasn't meant to be after his side were dumped out of the MTN8 by Cape Town City.
 
 
The Team of Choice's MTN8 journey came to an end after after they lost 1-0 t the Mother City outfit at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
 
“It was a scrappy affair the pitch was bumpy it didn’t help. Definitely not for the supporters to say they would want to come back again to watch next week,” Davids told SuperSport after the game.
 
“I think we were a bit naive to concede a set-piece just before halftime. It’s naive to be switched off in the organisational structure. In terms of the set-piece structure that was naive.
 
“We came out [in the second half] and the goalkeeper [Peter Leeuwenburgh] made a couple of saves but we have to focus on the league now. The fight was there but it wasn’t meant to be."
