Middendorp wants a sharper Maritzburg



Maritzburg need to work on their sharpness in attack and learn how to hold possession for a little longer in the opposing penalty area, said their coach Ernst Middendorp after his side were beaten 1-0 by Ajax Cape Town away on Friday night.

“If everything goes along realistically and we can sort out our problems upfront, we have a chance of finishing between position five and eight,” said the German coach after his team lost away for the first time this season.

“We have to work on two or three points but it has been a successful season so far.

“To finish in the top eight will be a success for us, especially given that we assembled a new team at the start of the season. The new players in our squad are mostly players who did not get too many matches at their last club.’

Maritzburg had a chance to go third in the standings if they had beaten Ajax but lost to a late goal from Toriq Losper.

Just a minute after the 86th minute goal, veteran Delron Buckley, on his 35th birthday, missed a sitter to equaliser. “It was a good goal chance and this season we have buried those sort of chances,” Middendorp rued.
