De Sa: It felt like deja vu

Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa says he is growing tired of seeing his team giving away soft goals.

The Urban Warriors were the better side against Platinum Stars at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night, scoring first through Tashreeq Morris. 

But a mistake from midfielder Ndiviwe Mdabuka saw Ndumiso Mabena sprinting clear to score for Dikwena as they snatched a 1-1 draw.

It was not the first time that Ajax have caused their own downfall this season and De Sa becoming frustrated with the carelessness of his players.

"Football is about mistakes and errors. It’s just sad that it has happened so many times," De Sa said after the game.

"But it goes like that, sometimes you concede five goals in a row from corner kicks through bad marking, right now, in the last 10 goals, I think six of those have been one-on-ones with bad mistakes at the back.

"We have all seen it before, it felt a bit like déjà vu again, but having said that, the guys tried to force it. I thought we had enough chances to seal the game. I was also disappointed in the finishing."
