Ajax Cape Town coach, Ian Taylor, reveals that he is disappointed after losing 2-1 to Orlando Pirates last night.
In what was seen as a game of two halves, the Urban Warriors mentor said the game was a close affair.
Taylor was appointed interim coach following Muhsin Ertugral’s resignation last week citing personal reasons. The Ikamva-based side didn’t hesitate to hand Taylor the reins, with his first game coming against the Sea Robbers at Orlando Stadium.
Speaking to the club’s website, Taylor said they started well in the first half but conceded an early goal.
“I am disappointed that we lost; we created enough chances to at least clinch a draw, however we have got to learn when and where to play the ball. It was a close game and I am looking forward to the next game against AmaZulu,” said Taylor.
The Urban Warriors conceded goals in each half of the game, but showed a gutsy fight back with a consolation goal by Granwald Scott, and close calls by Tasreeq Morris. Eleazar Rogers nearly gave them a lead or an opportunity to secure a draw.
Ajax are currently placed at position nine on the PSL standings, and will aim to get back to winning ways when they face Craig Rosslee’s AmaZulu in Durban on Tuesday, February 4.
