Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund admits that he will have to change his starting eleven after lacklustre performances.

Jabulani Shongwe scored the only goal of the game as Bidvest Wits battled to a nail-biting 1-0 win over SuperSport United in an Absa Premiership encounter despite Henrico Botes being sent off 45 minutes before the match concluded.

According to KickOff, Igesund believes some of the players he often uses have had one too many chances of proving themselves.

“There were a couple of players that didn’t quite come to the party tonight, we conceded again a goal in the first half that I though we could have dealt better with, and I’ve got to obviously look to change things a little bit more now and go from there,” he said after the match.

“I’ve given a group of players, I think some of them, enough chances now to really go out there and we have to get up very, very quickly.

“We’ve gotta keep working. We worked very hard this week, the ball just didn’t roll for us tonight, it was hard to break them down but we can’t panic now, we gotta keep moving the ball, keep moving forward and work on little situations.
