According to Soccer Laduma, Tinkler gives credit to Stars but laments his sides performance as they yet again failed to get things right.

"We knew it was going to be difficult. We started extremely well, , we got that early goal, our movement was very good, we knew we needed to spread them, we got the goal then I don't know what happened," he said after the game.

"We stopped doing the right things at the right moment, Our crossing was poor, our decision-making in the final third was poor, and that obviously created difficulties for us.

"Just unfortunately couldn't get that second, because I think if we got that second, maybe we could have even got the third but that's not the and you also got to give credit to them."

Kermit Erasmus opened the scoring, but Ea Lla Koto equalised through Moeketsi Sekola, who netted for the ninth time this season to move clear at the top of the goal scorers’ chart.
