Ajax Cape Town assistant coach Dylan Deane has challenged the Urban Warriors to build on their 1-0 win over TS Galaxy in Kameelrivier this past weekend.
Grant Margeman scored the only goal of the game as the visitors claimed their second away win of the campaign, in scorching conditions at a packed Kameelrivier Stadium in Mpumalanga on Sunday.
“It was difficult considering the conditions, the heat, but we applied ourselves well,” Deane said in aftermath of the clash. “The guys implemented the structure that we worked on in build-up to the game and we are very happy with the result.
“There weren’t a lot of chances in the first half, but we persevered and I think we deserve our win. We played well and we created quite few chances, obviously very happy with the three points.
“It was an important three points for us, we need to keep working hard, keep taking the right steps and working to the coach’s instructions. We will enjoy the bit of rest and then come back and focus on our next task.
A reported 10 000 people crammed into the Kameelrivier Stadium making for an incredible atmosphere throughout the clash and Deane reserved special praise for those who attended the match.
“Excellent atmosphere, this is what South African football needs. The passion of the people, the fans were still signing after the final whistle and that is what we need to see more of – our football product is good and we need more people coming to the stadium,” Deane concluded.
Next up for the Urban Warriors in the National First Division is a clash against Cape Town rivals Ubuntu on Saturday the 20th of October, kick-off is at 15h30 CAT. Tickets are on sale Computicket.
