De Sa: We could have scored more goals

Wits coach Roger De Sa is happy with the way his side played in beating Santos 2-0 in the opening fixture of the Absa Premiership at Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday.

”I think we played well and could have scored more,” he said. ”But overall I am very happy.”

Wits striker Phikolethu Spelman headed the home team into the lead and former Santos playmaker Marawaan Bantam doubled the score before the half-time break. Santos striker Eleazor Rodgers later missed from the spot and so did his partner, Irwin Isaacs.

De Sa was not happy, however, with the penalties his team conceded.

”I think the guys wasted a few chances, but they’re a young side and will learn from this. I am also not happy with the way we conceded two penalties. We will work on it and improve on this,” De Sa noted.

Wits debutant midfielder Clifford Mulenga, who won man-of-the-match award, said better things are still to come.

”I am not 100% happy with my performance. I definitely think I can and will improve,” the former Tuks midfielder said.

”I’ve been here for two months now and am really enjoying it. It was easy to get to know the guys and although it took some time to get used to Roger’s methods, I can say that I understand what he wants from us,” the Zambian told reporters. — Sapa
