Ajax Cape Town head coach Stanley Menzo wasn’t ready to point any fingers following his side’s 1-1 stalemate against Golden Arrows on Saturday afternoon.

The Urban Warriors were denied a clear goal in the opening minutes of the clash at the Prince Magogo Stadium, as the linesman wrongly adjudged Mark Mayambela of being in an offside position when guiding the ball into the back of the net.

Arrows duly opened the scoring, but Ajax Cape Town never let their heads drop and finally pulled level in the 77th minute. Thabo Mosadi picking out Prince Nxumalo at the back post, the forward nodding home from a corner-kick in his home province.

The visitors were the better team throughout and were unlucky not to make it two wins from two this week – a point for their travels, though, is all they got.

“It’s mixed feelings you know, when you play away [against] Golden Arrows it’s not easy, but if you saw the first half – I think in the first 10-15 minutes we could score two times,” Menzo told the SABC.

“Then out of nothing they score and in the second half we pushed for the win, [after] first getting the equaliser of course. A little bit unlucky but compliment for the players.”

“I didn’t see it,” Menzo added when questioned about the incident.

“It was for me difficult to see but that’s a pity. Again, the game was not yet played at that moment, but it would be good for us to have taken the lead. In the end I can’t blame anyone and I won’t blame anyone,” he concluded.
