Following his side’s 1-1 draw against Kaizer Chiefs in a league match on Saturday night, Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa believes his side were well-worth the point for their second half showing.
We were a lot better in the second half,” said De Sa.
“In the first half we were a little bit fortunate at times, but in the second half we started to play a little bit more and we created a couple of chances.
“When we conceded we were playing pretty well, but it is good to see that we bounced back straight away.
“I don’t think either side wanted to lose at the end, so it was basically just holding on.
“I suppose they had more clear chances than us, but we got better.”
De Sa was also full of praise for Nathan Paulse who levelled matters for Ajax against Chiefs with a powerful header at a corner-kick.
“He (Paulse) is 30-something and getting better and better, this is probably the best he has played in a long time,” added De Sa.
“He is carrying the team, but unfortunately now he is suspended (with the yellow card he received against Chiefs) and will miss out on the next game.”
