Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder John Arwuah earned the Man of the Match away for a sturdy performance in the middle of the park as they held Kaizer Chiefs to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday.
Arwuah said that they were well prepared to keep out the defending ABSA Premiership champions and was pleased to secure a point after their disappointing loss to University of Pretoria in their last outing.
"We knew how Kaizer Chiefs would play. They like to compact the midfield and try to penetrate us. We watched their game several times," said the Phunya Sele Sele midfielder.
"We were disappointed with the result that we got away to Tuks. I think we played well, but we were let down by our goal scoring.
"This point was very important to us, we needed the three points but a point is better than nothing."
Asked if he was happy with his own performances so far this season, he added, "I think I am not there yet. I want to perform to the best of my ability. I know that I can compete in the midfield. I knew they had (Willard) Katsande who is very strong, so for me to be in the midfield I also need to be stronger.
"So far so good, but I think there is room for improvement."
