Cape Town - Moroka Swallows coach Fani Madida was happy with his side's performance against Polokwane City on Saturday night, despite seeing them suffer a 2-1 defeat.

The Dube Birds looked to be heading for a draw with just a few minutes left on the clock. However, Rendani Ndou popped up in second-half injury time to give Polokwane the lead following a goalmouth scramble.

And Madida felt his charges were unlucky to leave Saturday's encounter empty-handed, having more than matched their opponents for large spells throughout.

"I'm disappointed with the result but very happy with the performance," Madida told Sapa.

"It was a very close game, we missed a lot of chances, and towards the end they came back, otherwise we were in control. It's just an unfortunate one."

Reflecting on the series of events which lead to the winning goal, he added: "When the ball is in the air you need to react and organise yourselves as defenders.

"We didn't react, which is why they managed to get the ball after the goalkeeper (Greg Etafia) made a save."
