De Sa Praises Ajax

Ajax Cape Town coach, Roger De Sa, insists that his charges will get better with the return of his injured key players.

 The former Wits and Orlando Pirates mentor welcomed back two players to his squad in Dominic Isaacs, Granwald Scott and gave Simba Sithole his debut against University of Pretoria yesterday afternoon.

De Sa revealed that It’s not easy when you miss the likes of Nathan Paulse and Eleazar Rogers, said it was nice to get Simba into the game.

“He has been out for quite some time and showed signs that he can bring something different to our game. Tuks are not a bad side they know how to play spoiling football to disrupt the opposition. TUKS enjoy playing on the counter-attack; they have caught a few teams by scoring against the run of play. We needed to ensure that we did not get caught out by that game plan. Obviously we wanted to get the opening goal and force them to open-up and we came close a few times but could not break the deadlock.

“I think we have got to get a lot better in the final third of the field. Although (Keagan) Dolly did not have the freedom to play his game, he’s a play maker and makes things happen. When Scotty came on, he added impetus to our attack and that gave Barra freedom to go forward. We pushed (Abbubaker) Mobara a bit higher, he looked a bit more dangerous and so did Dolly and Simba. I think today Bara was better going forward and he made things happen,” said De Sa.

Scott made his comeback from a forced lay-off after sustaining an injury during the Nedbank Cup game with a cut to his forehead that needed 40 stitches.

In their next game, the Ikamva-based side will face Kaizer Chiefs at Peter Mokaba stadium on Wednesday.
