TS Galaxy coach Sead Ramovic praised his players for their performance in drawing 2-2 with Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night.

Ranga Chivaviro opened the scoring with 18 minutes on the clock at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Sphiwe Mahlangu levelled from the penalty spot on 32 minutes before Edmilson Dove was dismissed for Amakhosi with a second yellow card on the stroke of half-time.

Despite being down man, Chivaviro restored Amakhosi’s lead with a 50th minute goal, but Mahlangu secured a share of the spoils with his second goal of the game, with 14 minutes of the match remaining.

The result left the Rockets in fifth on the DStv Premiership standings, and Chiefs down in eighth place.

Speaking after the game, Ramovic had positive words for their opponents, while admitting his team performed well, following a busy schedule that had seen them play five games in 16 days.

The Galaxy boss told SuperSport: “I hope Chiefs come back stronger, they belong to the top three.

“I think in the future they will do things better, they are a quality club with beautiful supporters.”

Ramovic added: “It was our fifth game in 16 days and it was unbelievable how we came out with a lot of energy.

“In the second minute we had an unbelievable opportunity, and then in the 12th minute we had another beautiful opportunity that their keeper saved.

“We gave a gift away, but as a team we win and lose together and we had to come back and that is what we did.

“In the second half we wanted to come back even stronger, but after a free-kick we conceded a goal. 

“It was not easy, Chiefs defended very well but we showed huge character. 

“Yes, it was a great opportunity to get the three points, we dominated and had a lot of opportunities but I have to give credit to my guys, we have to keep going.”
