Ajax Cape Town assistant coach Mich D’Avray believes they were fortunate to walk away with a point against Baroka FC.

The Urban Warriors managed to snatch a 1-1 draw against the Absa Premiership newcomers from Limpopo.

D’Avray, who was seating in for suspended head coach Roger De Sa, said the Cape Town outfit played well in the first half and allowed Baroka to dominate the game in the second half.

“Well, I thought we stopped playing after the first goal. We allowed Baroka to come at us,” said D’Avray.

“They weren’t causing us too many problems in the first half.

“In the second half, they certainly did. If I’m too honest, I think we were fortunate to come away with a point.”

D’Avray reserved special praise for debutant Thabo Mosadi who moved to Ajax in the off-season from University of Pretoria.

“Thabo (Mosadi) was good for us. He caused problems down the right hand side and he looked like the man to unlock the door and create things for us. But we needed more performances from other players like he put in tonight.”
