MTN 8 : It’s a learning curve for the players, Tinkler
Cape Town City FC lost 3-0 loss to Bidvest Wits at Milpark Stadium in their 1st MTN 8 semi final leg.
They beat Free State Stars and later on beat Kaizer Chiefs in the quarter-final of the MTN 8 with great performance
Bidvest Wits displayed the same ruthless performance that saw them dispose off Soweto giants of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates
Bidvest Wits completely dominated the game from the start to finish
“First 45 minutes, dismal to be entirely honest, I thought we started extremely poorly,” Tinkler told SuperSport.
“We said in order to win this game we needed to match them in terms of aggression. ”
“We didn’t win a ball, a challenge, every first and second ball they won it, we didn’t stop the crosses coming into the box and looked really disorganised and poor in the first half, which was extremely disappointing. ”
“We also gifted them two very easy goals and then it’s always going to be difficult to come back against a team of Wits’ quality, 3-0 down at half-time…
“Learning curve, that’s important. It’s a learning curve for the players. Now we’ve got to start bucking down, working hard, we’ve got another away game now against [Golden] Arrows [on Wednesday], start focusing on that.”
