Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler felt their draw with Kaizer Chiefs in the DStv Premiership on Tuesday was a fair result.
The Citizens, who lost 2-1 to Royal AM in the Nedbank Cup prior to the Chiefs game, kept the star-studded Amakhosi attack at bay and held them to a 0-0 draw at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday.
“It was a very tough game, both teams coming off a loss in the Nedbank Cup and wanting to restart the league in a positive way. Both teams were very well structured defensively, neither wanted to give anything away,” Tinkler told SuperSport TV after the game.
“Offensively we were not at our best, our first touch let us down. Our transitional play was not quick enough and because of that it allowed Chiefs to get back and organise themselves. We created [attacking] situations, but the true reflection of the game is a draw. It is a fair result.
“I was quite happy with the performance from everyone, I thought the work ethic and the intensity was much better than what I saw against Royal AM.
“So there are certain positives we can take from the performance, but we would have loved to take three points. We just have to move on and start prepping for the game against Golden Arrows (away on Sunday).
“Trying to get that momentum again is going to be the key factor for us. With these games we can only get better and stronger.”
City’s name game is against Golden Arrows away in Durban on Sunday.
