Arubi: We need to eliminate mistakes

Cape Town - University of Pretoria goalkeeper Washington Arubi says the club's defenders need to do a better job of protecting the goal.

AmaTuks began their 2015/16 campaign with a 1-0 loss against Premiership returnees Golden Arrows, who played almost the entire match with only 10 men after Maximilian Mbaeva's sending off midway through the first-half.

As the last line of defence, Arubi expects better in future matches but acknowledged the new players were still adjusting.

"I think we are all a little disappointed with the way we defended against Arrows," Arubi told Football411.

"In future we need to eliminate mistakes and play tighter to prevent leaking in any goals. It was good for us in the sense that it was an eye opener which gave us an idea of where we need to improve going forward.

"It's better to know our weaknesses now that go deep into the season without knowing where we need room for improvement.

"It's the first season that we start with our new coaches (Sammy Troughton and Sly Mosala) so as well it may take some time before we get going."
