Tinkler psychs up City

ON TARGET: Lehlohonolo Majoro

'When the goalkeeeper's Man of Match, we didn't play well'.

Ahead Cape Town City’s Telkom Knockout quarterfinals tomorrow, coach Eric Tinkler is not happy about his team’s form

Results have been good.

With Wednesday night’s 1-0 win over Bloem Celtic, City have won four and drawn two of their eight league games and are in fifth position, just two points behind PSL leaders Wits.

But the boss says: “When our goalkeeper [Samora Motloung] gets Man of the Match award, it gives you a good indication. I don’t think we played very well.

“It’s amazing, because when we play against the bigger teams, we play with no fear, players seem to be able to express themselves.

“We manage to keep the ball, we look good in possession, we look good going forward.

“And then against Celtic, we can’t make more than two, three passes. Our decision making is poor, our first touch is poor, our first pass is poor.

“That’s worrying. I can’t understand why that is happening. Why can’t they produce like they do against bigger teams?

“So I consider ourselves lucky to collect all three points.”
