It was not easy: BA coach

WINDHOEK, 23 FEB (NAMPA) - Black Africa Football Club (FC) beat Cuca Tops FC from Rundu by two goals to one at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Saturday in a Bidvest Namibia Cup Round of 32 match.
BA coach Brain Isaacs told Nampa on Sunday it was not an easy game for them but it ended in their favour.
“It was very difficult to play with the same speed and work rate just after playing Kaizer Chiefs. My players really struggled, but am happy we did not lose,” he said.
BA drew one-all against South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs at the Independence Stadium in Windhoek a week ago during the second leg of the two teams’ Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League preliminary rounds.
Isaacs stated that although BA controlled the game against Cuca Tops, they failed to play on the high level they usually do.
“I do not really know what was wrong, but we will prepare ourselves for the next games,” he said.
Both BA’s goals were scored by midfielder Willy Stephanus in the first half.
On the same day, Bidvest Cup defending champions, Africans Stars, also won 2-1 against Eleven Arrows from Walvis Bay.
The Last-16 round will take place next weekend at venues yet to be announced with Tigers facing Blue Waters, Orlando Pirates vs African Stars; United Stars vs Blue Boys; Tura Magic vs Tropical Heat; Kaizen Football Academy vs Ramblers; Blue Birds vs Black Africa; Citizens vs Bee Bob Brothers; and Rundu Chiefs vs Mountain Rangers.
