Highlands Park head coach Owen da Gama was proud of his players after their hard-fought 0-0 draw with Chippa United on Tuesday.

Heading into the game on the back of a solid 1-1 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns, Da Gama's side were full of running.

They came up against a massively resilient Chippa side though, with the Lions of the North mentor describing the encounter as "war".

Speaking after the game, the Da Gama explained his side gave as good as they got.

He said on the club's official Twitter account: "We were fighting tooth and nail. It was really war out there today. It was not an easy team to play, they defended very well.

"But the amount of opportunities we got, it just wouldn't go into the net."

Da Gama added: "But in saying that, I'm proud of all the players It was just not our day. We gave it our best shot and we will keep on trying and working hard."

Highlands Park are next up against Polokwane City at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.
