Cape Town - Cape Town City captain Lebogang Manyama says he often practices his long-range shooting at training, following his sensational goal against Highlands Park in a league encounter.
Eric Tinker's charges played to a 1-1 draw against their fellow Premiership newcomers on Tuesday, with Manyama netting an absolute thunderbolt.
"It was a very tough game, I mean, it's never easy playing away from home. With the games we've played over the past two weeks, we haven't had it easy," he told SuperSport.
"But we have to soldier on and unfortunately we conceded from a mistake that we spoke about. But it's a learning curve, we have to learn from these things.
"At least we came here and took and point; we didn't lose. We can only learn from our mistake and keep on soldiering on," he added.
Tinkler's men are in third in the latest league standings, with the only blip on their record a 2-0 loss to Golden Arrows.
The former SuperSport United midfielder bagged the Man-of-the-Match award for his efforts and also commented on the improving relationships within the squad, citing Bongolehu Jayiya and Judas Moseamedi's partnership up-front.
"The guys have been telling me to 'shoot, shoot, shoot'," he said. "But I'm that kind of players who always wants to pass and create, so [last night] I thought, 'why not?
"It went in and I thank God for giving me such a goal, and I think I have to keep on shooting then I'll score goals like that.
"It [the combinations] starts at training, and I think it actually started last season. We understand each other and how we play.
"We aren't perfect yet; there's always room for improvement. But they are a great bunch to work with, you can see they work very hard, which is important because our defence work hard and we have to do the same in front.
"It's a collective effort at the end of the day," Manyama concluded.
