Ertugral Bemoans Ndoro’s Absence In Downs Defeat

Muhsin Ertugral Bemoans Ndoro’s Absence In Sundowns Defeat

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 09, 2018 11:11 PM

Ajax Cape Town coach Muhsin Ertugral believes if they had Tendai Ndoro on the park against Mamelodi Sundowns, he would have ended the evening with a hat-trick.

According to the Turk, they spurned a number of chances that the Zimbabwean would have comfortably tucked away, but he will be available to finally make his debut on Friday against Platinum Stars.

“If we had him (Ndoro) tonight, maybe he could have finished all the chances and get another hat-trick. He is a proper player who gets half a chance and scores,” Ertugral told SuperSport after the game.

After going ahead through Fagrie Lakay, the quality and experience of the visitors came to the fore as they took complete control of the game.

With the rub of the green on their side, they find the equalizer from the spot through Brazilian-born Ricardo Nascimento with the eventual winner coming two minutes later courtesy of Sibusiso Vilakazi.

“At first, you are playing against a side that knows what they are doing in any system you approach. The moment you open side, they come from another side, so they are a brilliant team.

“But the first 30 minutes (we should have) had the second and maybe third (goal) but we went on the back-foot with the penalty which I’m not convinced, will have to check the replay and then we became disorganized at the back and conceded the second goal.

“Obviously, it forced them to put a foot on the pedal brake with their passing patterns but we came back strongly in the second half and had three chances again, with one where with a little bit composure would have levelled it at 2-2.

“Unfortunately, we have to keep the morale up again. They did well tonight, but these kind of games are not in our class,” he said.

The former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates mentor handed a debut to Zimbabwean midfielder Gerald Takwara, but is counting on the return of Grant Margeman and Morne Nel to stabilise his midfield area.

“I’m not happy with the central midfield. Takwara showed a bit of glimpses of quality here and there and with more game-time, he will be at his best.

“We got Margeman and Nel injured so when these boys return I think we will function a bit better in midfield,” stated the 58-year-old.
