Match report

18 Nov 2017

Steve Komphela: "We were poor first half but we were much better in the second half.

"With the red card we suffered and the lesson is that the mistakes we made were just crucial. In matches of this calibre you have to take your chances."

18 Nov 2017

Gavin Hunt: "First half very good, we kept the ball but it looked like we didn't want to score the second one and that was disappointing.

"They caused us a few problems second half but that's what happens in football. Now onto bigger things this week."
