Real Kings FC coach Thulisani Latha was left satisfied with his team’s efforts after they came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Black Lions in the ABC Motsepe KwaZulu-Natal League on Sunday afternoon at King Zwelithini Stadium.
Kings who are second on the KZN stream B log had to dig deep to get a point after conceding two quick goals in the first 10 minutes of the match.
The coach was encouraged after witnessing his side’s fighting spirit.
“I think our opponents today are getting stronger but we managed to fight back because it was all about fighting after conceding two early goals, within the space of 10 minutes.”
“My boys are very strong I believe in them I think it’s only a matter of lapse in concentration there and there and we ended up dropping points like we did today, but come a greener day I think we gonna do some magic,” said Latha.
The coach was surprised with his team’s performance in the earlier stages of the match and he believes his players underestimated their opponents.
“I think it’s complacency you know, you can’t switch on and off just like a robot some players will have that complacency and say this team is a bit weak maybe in their minds, then they get caught by surprise,” he continued.
“But again they managed to come back, I think it was just about complacency thinking that we are bigger than them which is not the case in the field no one is big, until you finish the game and win three points, I think that’s where we got it wrong,” added Latha.
The plan for the coach moving forward is to instill the discipline at the back and staying alert all the time.
“Come next game you’ll see something different, we’ll take one game at a time and see where it takes us,” concluded Latha.
