The Amakhosi player was speaking after his side’s slender 1-0 win over Platinum Stars in an Absa Premiership match on Sunday, which saw them bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Chippa the weekend before.
Ekstein is adamant the team feels good and they are happy to have responded with a win to keep the supporters happy.
“We didn’t play well in the first half against Platinum Stars, but we picked up in the second half and that is why we played the way we played and got the win,” Ekstein told SuperSport after the game.
“I don’t think we are under pressure even though we lost last week 3-0, but we had to pick up our performance and play better today.
“I am happy with the way we have responded after the loss last week. The pressure may have been on us, but we play well today and did it for our supporters.
“We are now looking forward to our semi-final (in the Nedbank Cup against Free State Stars), and we will begin preparations for that on Tuesday.”
