Lebusa: We should not have defended the lead

Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town stand-in captain Mosa Lebusa feels his side should have gone for the second goal after losing the lead in the 1-1 draw with Kaizer Chiefs at Athlone Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Urban Warriors looked set to steal a narrow one goal win over the in-form Amakhosi, who were on a five match winning run, with Nathan Paulse's second-half header.

However, despite putting in a man of the match display from left-back, Lebusa's side conceded late on when Daniel Cardoso's flicked header beat goalkeeper Jody February.

The academy graduate lamented their decision to sit deep and invite pressure from the Soweto giants in the closing stages, claiming it back-fired as they needed maximum points.

"It was a difficult game, it was a difficult game of two halfs," he said after the game. "First half was the beginning, we dominated.

"Second-half we got the goal and then after that we sat back and then we allowed them to come and then they scored and then they suddenly put us under pressure and I think it is more like we lost two points than gained one.

"I think after we scored we tried to defend our lead and that is the mistake we did. We should have scored and then tried to get another one and then maybe we would have eased the pressure."
