While disappointed to concede a stoppage time equaliser in the 1-1 draw against Swallows on Saturday, Golden Arrows Head Coach Mandla Ncikazi admits his team weren’t at their best and they’ll take the point.
Second-placed Arrows looked to be heading to an unlikely victory in their DStv Premiership game on the weekend, before Vuyo Mere’s last minute equaliser saved the blushes for Brandon Truter’s team.
Ncikazi says it was one of the worst performances this season from his high-flying Arrows team, but says that there were lessons to be learnt from the performance.
“Mixed feelings, I’m disappointed that we conceded that late, but truth be told, I don’t think we played our best game today,” Ncikazi said after the match.
“If we got the three points, we would have stolen them. It happens in some matches. But now the score is 1-1. I thought we we are content with the point.”
“Just one of our worst games that I’ve seen Arrows play this season. But the team is allowed to to have one of those odd games. It should be lessons going forward. “
“But I know after a break, we’re not the same team. Maybe one, we have to work on something related to the break, it’s lessons for all of us, even in the technical side, that maybe we should deal with the break differently.”
“But I’m grateful that we got a point away from home, look at the bigger picture, we did not lose. Let’s take the point learn and move forward.”
