According to Soccer Laduma, Barker laments the soft goal which was scored by Cuthbert Malajila to ensure Mamelodi Sundowns.

“It seems like it is a recurring movie right now – a lot of great effort, working hard for one another, keeping ourselves in matches to try and win it, but unfortunately once again we gave the goal away which was a bit of a soft goal,” said the for University of Pretoria coach.

“At the end of the day we probably didn’t create enough chances ourselves to actually win the game.

“I must commend my players again for their great commitment and their never say die attitude. Tomorrow is another day and we have to stand up.”

AmaZulu have 11 games to get out of the relegation zone as they are still 16th on the log with 9 points having only won one game and losing 12.

Their next PSL game is against Gordon Igesund’s SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday, March 1.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
