Solomons: We Will Learn

Polokwane City coach Boebie Solomons admits Black Leopards gave them tough game in their final promotion/relegation playoff match on Sunday, but his side were the better team and deserved the win.

Goals from Sipho Jembula and Vukile Mngqibisa handed Polokwane a 2-1 win which saw them keep their status in the Absa Premiership intact.

“The first half was ours and in the first 25 minutes we should have scored about five goals, then we took our foot off the pedal,” said Solomons.

“The second half belonged to them, they were coming at us, they had no option but to come at us.

“I am just disappointed that when we won the ball we didn’t punish them again, that was our game plan to punish them when we win the ball.

“All credit to them, they gave us a very hard game, they have good players, they have a good coach, but we were the better team on the day.

“They thought we were going to sit back in the first half which we didn’t, we were putting them under pressure, we were closing them down and we didn’t give them any room to move.”

Looking to the future, Solomons said they will learn from their mistakes and do better next season.

“This year was the first year in the PSL for this club, it is a learning process from management right down to the players,” added the Polokwane coach.

“I am glad that we survived the season because now we have learnt so many lessons to take forward into next season.”
