Eric Tinkler: We were lucky

Cape Town City mentor Eric Tinkler admits his side's 2-0 win over TS Galaxy was not a fair reflection of the match.

City rode their luck on many occasions in the encounter with goalkeeper Hugo Marques coming to the rescue of Tinkler's men numerous times to keep his 13th clean sheet of the season and enhance his chances of winning the PSL Goalkeeper of the Season award.

In the end Darwin Gonzales' first goal for the club and an Mduduzi Mdantsane penalty would separate the sides but Tinkler admitted the three points definitely flattered his side.

"I am just happy with the three points but I don't think we performed well today, to be brutally honest. I think we have to give them [Galaxy] a lot of credit because they came here, they put us, from the first whistle, under a lot of pressure. I have to say our performance collectively wasn't great," said Tinkler.

"There was a lot of mistakes in defence, giving them too much time. When we needed to press them, we didn't. We rode our luck a little bit and sometimes you just got to say to yourself, thank God for the three points. Even when we play ugly football we can collect some points. That makes me happy."
