Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town left-back Musa Lebusa was pleased with his side's performance in their league clash with Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The Urban Warriors fought vigorously in defence to contain Amakhosi and earn a point away from home in a 0-0 draw, which took them just two points shy of the top-eight.

"It was a tough game, especially away against Chiefs," Lebusa told his club's official website.

"We did our best, we tried, we created chances, but unfortunately we just couldn’t score. I think our defence was superb. We did everything right. You can play well but if you don’t score you don’t win games. So the focus right now is to get three points."

Ajax coach Roger De Sa felt neither team impressed in the first half, however, he was happy with the way his troops handled the second half.

"The first 45 was very poor. All round the football was poor from both teams. I think they edged it a bit in the first half," he told the club's website.

"Second half I think we got a bit better, we had some good clear chances. At the end of the day it’s not a bad result for us. I told the players we were going to get 60-40 from the officials, but I was wrong."

The Mother City club are currently sitting 10th in the league standings, with 32 points from 25 games and will host leaders Mamelodi Sundowns at Cape Town Stadium in their next Premiership match.
