The Turk watched his team throw away their advantage after Deolin Mekoa had scored the games's opener only for Ea Lla Koto to score twice within fifteen minutes and snatch victory at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
“Every time we won the ball back, we could never get out. It was all coming through the middle and the pressure mounted, we invited them and now we are in a difficult situation,” coach Ertugral admitted.
"We gave them a bit too much space at times but these are elements of our game that we can learn from. The boys are up for the fight and we will improve," he added.
With the likes of Fortune Makaringe, Mohau Mokate and Rushine De Reuck all close to returning to the team from injury, coach Ertugral is hoping their availability will bolster the squad in the coming weeks.
Mpho Matsi has joined the Team on loan from Cape Town City for the remainder of the season while Ertugral says he is also looking to add to the squad up front.
“It doesn’t rain but it pours, at the moment we have a bit of a challenge missing Makaringe, he is one of the best midfielders in the country and him coming in will give us a lot of balance and also maybe another striker in will be able to bring our other players in to the game, coach Ertugral said.
The Team of Choice have seven days to prepare for a visit to Loftus to face, Mamelodi Sundowns. Kick-off is at 19:30.
