Solomons: We Carried Out Our Game Plan

Polokwane City coach Boebie Solomons said his side deserved their 2-0 victory over Milano United in a promotion/relegation playoff on Sunday afternoon because they carried out their game plan.

Second half goals from Sphesihle Nzimande and Thabo Rakhale handed Polokwane the win that sees them four points clear at the top in the mini-league ahead of Black Leopards.

The Polokwane City coach also highlighted that Milano were not an easy side to beat.

“We carried out our game plan fairly well,” said Solomons.

“We wanted to put them under pressure.

“It wasn’t an easy game.

“Milano gave us a good fight. They are very good upfront and they can play, but they tried to go long too often and our tall guys at the back won most of those balls.

“We started keeping the ball better and we created good opportunities, not too many, but we created enough.

“They packed their defence, so it wasn’t easy to get past them.”

Solomons added that he told his players to focus on the weaknesses of Milano United’s left-back Taariq Fielies and it paid off in the end because that is the side from which the first goal came.

“In the first half already we started with our right winger, telling him to run at him (Fielies), run at him, run at him, so we wore him down, and when Thabo (Rakhale) came on he added the finishing touches,” added the Polokwane coach.

“I am happy that we scored the two goals and did not concede any, that is important.”
