August backs coach Igesund 27/09/04
Ajax Cape Town skipper Bradley August has slammed the behaviour of the few supporters who held a placard demonstration at Newlands on Saturday afternoon.

A small faction of fans were baying for the head of coach Gordon Igesund, with the memory of last Wednesday's 6-0 loss to Orlando Pirates still fresh in their minds.

And despite the Urban Warriors' 1-0 win over Silver Stars on Saturday, the troublesome crowd made their feelings known after the match as well.

But August revealed that the behaviour of those supporters was unacceptable and the players were disappointed in the fans.

"We were very unhappy with the behaviour of those fans," said August.

"It was uncalled for. The players still back the coach 100 percent. We would like to know what the problem is."

The Ajax captain also said that the supporters should be aware that Saturday's victory catapulted the Urban Warriors into fifth spot in the Castle Premiership, just three points off league leaders Orlando Pirates.

"As things stand, we are within striking distance of the log leaders," he added. "It's very early in the season, so to talk about doom and gloom and blame everything on the coach is not right.

"It's not only the coach's responsibility to get results. And the Pirates match was just a bad day at the office and that can happen to the best teams in the world."
