A black Sunday, which saw the Mighty Bulls crash to a 1-nil home loss to Madagascar’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 teams’ 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.

“We 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,” he said.

Though appearing out of their depth against a tactically superior Cnaps Sports outfit in Sunday’s woeful display, Motor Action’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 “it is never over until it is over,” 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.
