Galaxy who led one-nil at half time through Bathusi Oubaas’ penalty, have now lost two and drawn four of their last six matches.
TS Galaxy head coach Dan “Dance” Malesela believes that the problems of his side are more mental than technical. Malesela was speaking after yet another loss as they went down 2-1 at home to the University of Pretoria in a GladAfrica Championship game played at the Kameelrivier Stadium in Mpumalanga on Wednesday.
Galaxy who led one-nil at half time through Bathusi Oubaas’ penalty, have now lost two and drawn four of their last six matches in the league. It’s a scary record for Tim Sukazi’s team but Malesela who has just returned from sick leave hopes to get to the bottom of it.
Oubaas’ second penalty also in the first half was saved.
AmaTuks will thank the South African U23 internationals Kamohelo Mahlatse and Athenkosi Dlala, who came from the bench to score the two goals which won them the game. The experience of the Olympics bound stars showed in the second half and coach Zipho Dlangalala says its all about quality.
The win has pushed AmaTuks into the top four on the log with 10 points from 18 matches, they still have two games in hand.
Galaxy who are also the reigning Nedbank Cup champions, also had a good run recently in the CAF Confederation Cup when they exited in the play-off stage to Nigerian giants Enyimba FC.
They find themselves on the 12th spot on the log, only a point above the 15th placed Jomo Cosmos. Malesela says with the transfer window approaching in the next four weeks, maybe it’s time to look for fresh talent.
Out of the three players who went to Egypt, Dlangalala started with Katlego Mohamme at left-back and had Mahlatse and Dlala on the bench. He’s explained why he only started with Mohamme.
