Kaitano Tembo says a draw was a fair result for SuperSport United in their MTN8 semi-final first leg against Bloemfontein Celtic.
Ndumiso Mabena opened the scoring on 14 minutes at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium before Gamphani Lungu levelled on 50 minutes for a share of the spoils.
The two club's will battle it out for a place in the final when they meet for the second leg this weekend.
Speaking after the game, Tembo explained Matsatsantsa struggled to compete in the first half.
He told SuperSport: "It was not a good first-half performance. We looked a little bit flat and we did not have a good start. They dominated possession in the first half.
"They overloaded the midfield where they had more numbers than us. But in the second-half, we changed a little bit. We pressed with three at the top.
"That gave us opportunities as we got behind their defence. In the second-half, we played much better and gave a better performance."
Tembo added: "We could have done better. In the second-half we improved, we got better.
"We can only take the positives as it is played over two legs, we are still alive."
