Tinkler concerned pressure may have affected City

2017-05-04 06:00

Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler says it’s possible the pressure of challenging for the title could have resulted in the 1-0 defeat to Maritzburg United on Monday.

City went into the match in KZN just one point off the top of the league standings after a 3-2 home win over Kaizer Chiefs the previous week. But they were second best for most of the afternoon and barely managed to threaten the Maritzburg goal. From a tactical point of view, Tinkler says it’s difficult to identify the exact reasons for the loss.
