Ajax Cape Town had a dream start to their 2003/2004 Castle Premiership campaign, winning their first three games of the season, before losing their momentum slightly after losing consecutive games to Kaizer Chiefs and Wits University - both by a solitary goal.
Coach Igesund, however, is not too concerned that his team is losing form, but thinks rather that they have merely suffered a bit of bad luck in that the team happened to come up against two goalkeepers who are currently at the top of their games.
Speaking to www.ajaxct.com, Igesund feels that his players have been creating good chances, but unfortunately have not been able to find the back of the net, while on the other hand the opposition strikers have been able to use their few chances to full effect.
"Against Chiefs we dominated the play and created good chances to score, but Rowan Fernandez was outstanding - he pulled off brilliant saves and kept us out of the game, we could just not get past him," said Igesund.
"In the Wits game we again came up against a team that had a brilliant keeper, Wayne Roberts. He was the difference between a win or a draw, and we just could not get the ball past him. The guys played well and we created good chances. I won't say we left it too late, it's just that Roberts is on form and the Wits team were also organised very well defensively," he added.
The Coach, as he is popularly known, is preparing the team for their game tomorrow night against Manning Rangers, and will be sure to instill the confidence they require for a much needed win.
