Gavin Hunt: "I think we had the best chance of the game with Klate, but then the same player makes two mistakes and we're down by two goals.

"But credit to them they played well and played long balls whole night and I thought we dealt with it, but you can't make unbelievable errors...and the same player.

21 Nov 21:42

Pitso Mosimane: "It was a tight game, I wasn't happy with the performance. We turned it around in the second half because our subs lifted the level of our game.

I know Villa and Percy could've scored two each but I'm not happy with the passing."

"When Keene came on we knew with him and Gamal what was going to happen, that's their strength putting it in the box...but Bangaly had a brilliant game at the back."

Man of the Match: Khama Billiat
