Cape Town- Free State Stars coach Serame Letsoaka reckons that a point gained away from home was sufficient for his charges to help their PSL survival hopes following their 2-all stalemate against Ajax Cape Town.

The fellow strugglers shared the spoils in an entertaining Absa Premiership clash at the Athlone stadium on Friday.

Mohammed Anas bagged a brace for Ea Lla Koto on the night while the Urban Warriors grabbed the goals courtesy of Mark Mayambela and Rodrick Kabwe respectively.

Letsoaka said he cannot falter his forward men for missing clear-cut chances, which could have handed them a victory, due to the best effort displayed throughout the game.

“I think it was a game of two halves. They (Ajax) dominated the first half,” said Letsoaka.

“And we tried to amend our mistakes and it was a much better second half for us. Even before our red card we were dominating the preceding.

“Playing away from home, we could have won the game but we missed our chances to win the game. I can’t falter the boys because we did try our best.

“One point away in Cape Town at a time like this, I’m happy to take it.”

A draw left Ea Lla Koto on the 13th spot with Ajax placed 12th.
