Leading 3-0 in the second half, Lebohang Kukame and Kleinbooi Taaibos played to the gallery, sending a capacity crowd at the Seisa Ramabodu Stadium into a frenzy.
But AmaZulu did not give up and they continued to pile on the pressure with Shoes Moshoeu initiating most of the moves. It almost paid off as striker Dumisani Ngwenya grabbed a brace late in the game.
“The coach made it clear to amajita (his teammates) that that showboating can be dangerous, especially when there is still enough time to play,” said Sikhakhane, who was making a comeback after being off since December last year.
“I also believe we almost paid heavily for that showboating. One should only do it when you are leading comfortably and there is only a little time left on the clock.”
Sikhakhane revealed Zondo was happy with his performance after being out action for such a long time.
“He said I must never look back. I think I did well against AmaZulu, though I lack match fitness. I promise I will be back on form when we play Moroka Swallows away on Wednesday,” he adds.
