Cape Town Spurs head coach Ian Taylor believes his team should stop conceding soft goals as they hope for an improved second half of the campaign in their bid to climb the GladAfrica Championship log standings.
‘The Urban Warriors have had a poor start to the 2020/21 season as they are in the relegation zone in 15th place with 13 points after 14 matches. They have also scored the least amount of goals (10 alongside Pondo Chiefs) and conceded the most (22).
CT Spurs take on rivals Steenberg United on Sunday afternoon at the Cape Town Stadium (15:30). “We have worked a lot on defending, worked on our shape,” said coach Taylor.
“We need to stop giving soft goals away, it is something we’ve addressed. Defending is a team effort, we need to work harder, be more aggressive and start taking our opportunities.
“Every player has been given an opportunity but as the season draws into the second half, we need to look for more consistency and players need to now stick their hands up and say that they are here to do the business,” concluded the CT Spurs coach.
