Cape Town City have been struggling in recent weeks as they are without a win in their last seven matches and captain Thabo Nodada has attributed their poor run of form to their lack of prowess in front of goal.
‘The Citizens’ are seventh on the log standings with 27 points from 21 matches – six wins, nine draws, and six defeats.
“We haven’t taken our chances. So, it is a fair reflection of where we should be. If we had taken our chances we would have been in a better position. At some stage of the season, we were not defending our goal very well,” said Nodada.
“Once we started paying attention to that – like we have the last two games – against (Golden) Arrows and Baroka, then maybe we can think of climbing up the table.”
Nodada believes CT City are a better team than they are currently performing. “I’ve been saying we’re just one beautiful goal away,” he said.
“Like a rocket flying into the back of the net. Something that none of us expected it to happen and then it just happens. That could change everything. That spark we need,” Nodada said.
“We have to believe in our ability and know that we can change our situation.
“My job is never to remind people. The guys know what to do. I am playing with guys who are breadwinners… sole breadwinners… guys who are fighting to put food on the table for their families,” he said.
“I expect them to know what they need to do. I don’t have to remind them. We have seen some form of accountability the last two games and that’s a positive moving forward.”
