“We will definitely look back at this game as two points dropped instead of one gained,” said Larsen in a post-match interview.
“Some amateurish defending from us twice allowed them to equalise. Goals from (Wayde0 Jooste and (Lerato) Lamola took us into the break at 2-2. We played some enterprising football in the first half with much fluidity and penetration in our play. Poor defending again allowed them to take the lead but credit must be given to our players for never giving up,” explained Larsen.
Abafana Bes’thende’s persistence finally paid off when Nduduzo Sibiya netted the equaliser.
“Our constant attacking finally paid off when Sibiya drew us level. We kept pushing for a winner but it was not to be.
“Credit must also be given to our opposition and their coach for making such a good game of this encounter,” said the former Bloemfontein Celtic mentor.
