Cape Town City just can’t get the balance right as their wait for a PSL victory stretched to 10 games following Saturday’s goalless draw with Baroka.
The Citizens have been struggling to get their game firing on all cylinders, with the side conceding too many goals or struggling to find the back of the net.
The latter was the case this time around as City failed to beat their visitors at Cape Town Stadium at the weekend.
Back from his time in Bafana Bafana camp, winger Craig Martin should have given his team the lead in the 18th minute when he wasted a near-post chance.
City struggled to create any real chances and survived two second-half gimmes for Baroka and the point kept them just four points inside the top eight.
City boss Jan Olde Riekerink urged his side to do better with just nine games to go this season.
He says: “We’re disappointed because we were eager to win this game.
“There was a period [in the season] when we conceded too many goals and now we have a situation where we are struggling to score goals, so that’s a whole different problem.
“I think the first half we didn’t play badly, we should have created more chances because there were a lot of opportunities [to score].
“We should have scored, but we let Baroka back into the game in the second half. And they came close with two opportunities.
“We had more creativity in the last 20 minutes.
“We’re disappointed because we were eager to win.”
