The shot-stopper believes that they need to step up their game so that they could end the campaign on a strong note.

“It was quite disappointing. I don’t think we were quite good enough today….we gave the ball away, gave too many turn overs and SuperSport are a very good team on transition and good on counter attack,” Sandilands told SuperSport TV.
