Papic puts faith in attack


READ: Hunt - We should have won

City bounced back from their 5-1 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic on the weekend via strikes either side of the break from Puleng Tlolane and substitute Boban Bogere at Bidvest Stadium.

"I did say that the loss in Bloemfontein was not a true picture of our team. I am not trying to downplay Bloemfontein Celtic's win, but it was not a true picture for our team," Papic said.

"That is why we continued with our style of play which is attack, attack and recovered from that to win like this. I am happy with my team and we are getting where I want the team to be and the players are beginning to understand what is expected of them.

"In my opinion we do not even deserve to be down there in the log standings but we will move up soon."

Bogere scored Rise and Shine's second goal by tapping in an Esau Kanyenda cross two minutes after replacing Tlolane at the interval, with the latter netting three minutes before the break.

"He [Tlolane] has come from an injury and I took a risk with him and after scoring the goal he complained about feeling the pain and had to go replace him," Papic explained when asked about the change.

The Serbian added that he is confident his side will build on their first victory since he joined the club from Chippa United.

"Yes, it was my first win at the club and definitely not my last and we will continue with our style of play."
