Ajax Cape Town defender Mosa Lebusa has turned his attention to toppling SuperSport United, following an eye-catching performance against Kaizer Chiefs at Athlone Stadium on Saturday evening.
The 24-year-old took over the captain’s armband with regular skipper Travis Graham suspended, and more than stood up to the plate as the Urban Warriors ended the Soweto giants winning run at five matches.
Having taken the lead through a Nathan Paulse header early in the first-half, the Amakhosi pulled level through a Daniel Cardoso header as the two teams ultimately settled for a point apiece.
Lebusa was outstanding at left-back throughout the 90, and was duly rewarded with the man-of-the-match accolade in the aftermath.
He, though, insists that he could have been even better on the day, with his individual performance slightly overshadowed by the fact that the Urban Warriors failed to get all three points.
“I still believe it could be better,” Lebusa is quoted as saying by IOL. “It’s always nice to get man of the match awards, but it would have meant a lot more if we had won the game.
“It was a tough game against a very good team. We did well as a team. We would have, obviously, preferred all three points, but we’ll take the point.”
Next up for Stanley Menzo’s troops is a clash against top of the table SuperSport United in Atteridgeville this Saturday. The Tshwane side haven’t tasted defeat in the league since the opening day of the season.
“It’s another tough, tough fixture,” Lebusa added.
“It’s about the points for us, nothing else. But, I guess, for them, it’s exactly the same. But we have been working hard, we are improving, and we’ll give SuperSport a go on the night,” he concluded.
