Moloi: We got a rude awakening


This after they failed to follow that up when they met Ajax Cape Town in Milpark last night. The Chilli Boys were defeated 1-0 by the Urban Warriors, ending their 10-match unbeaten run.

Moloi was not pleased with the attitude and approach in a match in which two of his players, Daniel Akpeyi and Zitha Macheke, were sent off.

“There is nothing much to say, we didn't come to the party. They wanted it more and the players need to understand that it's not over, there is still a long way to go,” Moloi said.

“After beating Kaizer Chiefs, I think that win went to our heads and you could see today that from the first whistle we were not there.

“They [Ajax] wanted it more and I did say that if we are going to undermine Ajax we will get a rude awakening and that's exactly what happened.

“They didn't play without energy, it's just that they didn't have a passion. The passion was not there and they just didn't come to the party.”

Moloi added that they would look at videos of the match against Ajax and see which areas to rectify.

“The players didn't play to the level we all know that they can. And to make too many excuses won't help our course,” Moloi said.

“The honest truth is, we didn't come to the party and for me to come and explain so many things won't make any difference. We came to Milpark and we wanted to walk and stroll in the park to expect things to happen and this is what happens if you do that.

“We will go and watch the video of this game. There's more negatives than positives so this is a game you really need to analyse and the players need to look at themselves and know what it is that they want out of this season.”

The defeat was also Moloi's first in the league since he took over.
