Ajax Cape Town utility player Erwin Isaacs believes that the Urban Warriors
shouldn’t be too unhappy with the 1-1 draw against Kaizer Chiefs this past weekend, with the hosts ending the Soweto giants five game winning run at Athlone Stadium on Saturday evening.

Isaacs, who replaced Bantu Mzwakali in the second-half, told after the game that the team should take heart from the way they performed against the Amakhosi.

“We shouldn’t be too disappointed,” Isaacs is quoted as saying by in the aftermath of the Absa Premiership encounter.

“In fact we can take a lot of heart out of this performance and result.

Nathan Paulse had given Stanley Menzo’s troops the lead before Daniel Cardoso grabbed the equaliser for the Glamour Boys with 11 minutes of regulation time remaining.

Moreover, Isaacs made special note of the fact that Paulse has built up a reputation of performing well against Kaizer Chiefs and the burly forward showed exactly why, as he had the beating of Itumeleng Khune once more.

Paulse latching onto a pin-point Thabo Mosadi cross for his fifth goal of the season.

“It was pleasing to see that we tried to implement the things we did on training,”Isaacs, who has played mostly at right-back since Menzo took over the reins at the club, added.

Isaacs continued: “We gave them a run for their money at times. We played well in patches and Nathan was again showing his class against Chiefs.

“People shouldn’t forget we played a team that has won five games in a row. I think we didn’t do too bad. Like I said we can take a lot of heart out of this and build on this result going forward,” the 30-year-old concluded.
