Sipho Jembula says Polokwane City must improve defence after loss to SuperSport United

Polokwane City midfielder Sipho Jembula says the team is a threat going forward but their defence needs work.
City, who will end 2016 in fifth spot on the table with 21 points from 15 games, have scored the second most goals in the league with 19 strikes - two less than log leaders SuperSport United.
However, Rise and Shine have conceded the second most goals (20) in the division, nine less than relegation-threatened Highlands Park.
Jembula is well aware of the disparity.
"I think we need to focus on defending because in attack we are dangerous, but I think we got to fix that," Jembula told SuperSport TV after a 2-1 loss at SuperSport last night.
Meanwhile, Jembula felt his side got complacent against Matsatsantsa.
"I think we started well. The only thing we didn't do, we didn't capitalise on the chances we got. We just got one and relaxed. I think we need to learn from that."
The former Platinum Stars man has seen limited game-time this season, but says that is the call of coach Luc Eymael, who was upset with the officiating at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
"What I can say it's all on the coach. I can't say I want to start or go on the bench, it's the tactic the coach wants to do. But I will always do my best when I get on the field."
