Polokwane - Following their 1-all stalemate against Bidvest Wits last Saturday, Polokwane City coach Kostadin Papic was left unhappy with the spectacle produced by both teams.

Rise and Shine shared the spoils with the Clever Boys in wet conditions at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

"'Bill Clinton' admitted the conditions played a part in hindering his charges to play the attacking football they usually produce.

“It was a very strange performance from both sides,” said Papic.

“The situation we had, wet weather conditions and our opponents didn’t allow us to play our normal style of play.

“But we did a little better in the second part of the match but I think both teams were happy with the share of a point.

“We could have won the game though but we missed so many chances but the performances from both teams were very strange to me.

“Towards the end of the season we are supposed to be playing attractive football, not the kind of football we played.

“But maybe getting a point out of that game was vital for both teams.”

City remain eighth on the log, while Wits lie fourth.

City will face the wounded Free State Stars in their next league assignment at home on April 18.
