Motor Action Head Coach, Joey Antipas was left ruing the void left by the departure of Charles Sibanda and Bhekimpilo Ncube after his sideâ€™s disappointing 1-nil loss to Cnaps Sports of Madagascar in a CAF Champions League Preliminary Round encounter yesterday.
A black Sunday, which saw the Mighty Bulls crash to a 1-nil home loss to Madagascarâ€™s Cnaps Sports, left more questions than answers.
A band of Motor Action faithfuls was left shell shocked by a Cnaps late winner, which gave the Madagascan champions a huge advantage going into the return leg encounter in a fortnight.
Joey Antipas, who was vividly disappointed by his teamsâ€™ below par performance, was left ruing the vacuum left by the departure of Bhekimpilo Ncube and Charles Sibanda, after his side struggled to find any form of rhythm.
â€œWe really missed the guys, especially the scoring touch of Charles Sibanda. We could not capitalise on chances we got so we were punished for that,â€ he said.
Though appearing out of their depth against a tactically superior Cnaps Sports outfit in Sundayâ€™s woeful display, Motor Actionâ€™s number 1 supporter Elizabeth Rosen remained optimistic the Bulls will bounce back from the defeat in the reverse tie set for two weeks time.
While an old saying goes â€œit is never over until it is over,â€ Motor Action gaffer, Joey Antipas is faced with arguably his greatest challenge in his coaching career, when he embarks on a mission that appears impossible in the terrains of Madagascan soil in 2 weeks time.
