Masutha concerned with many draws


Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila head coach Joel Masutha has raised his concerns on his team’s inability to convert their chances in their last two league matches.

TTM played to 1-1 draw against AmaZulu over the weekend, their second successive draw and their fourth draw in six matches.

The results see the DStv Premiership rookies placed at position 10 on the log, seven points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns and six points above bottom placed, Maritzburg United.

“The draws are becoming too many now so we need to put the chances away, that’s the main thing we are going to work on now,” says Masutha.

“We are disappointed with the results because we controlled the match, they only got one quality cross wherein we didn’t press the ball and scored the goal. We have to work on the finishing, you can’t do all these difficult things and not punish the opponent.

“But I can’t also be blaming the boys looking at the three changes we made from the team that was playing regularly. We had two forced injuries and one suspension so when you call the other players who have not been playing that much and came and dished out what they did, then as a coach you are happy. You have a good headache, even when those guys are available we know we rely on everyone in our club,” he adds.

TTM will face neighbours Black Leopards in their next league encounter on Wednesday, 16 December at Thohoyandou Stadium.
