“The result over the weekend was a bit of a hard one to take. Obviously, we know we were defending champions of the MTN8, so we would have wanted to progress to the final to defend our title, but it was not to be,” Kekana told Sundowns media.
“Obviously [we are] a bit disappointed we don’t want to dwell on it too much, we can’t do anything about it. Our focus is now on the league.
“Our next match is Maritzburg United away in the league. So, we will be looking to bounce back and obviously get over the loss we suffered against Orlando Pirates. Hopefully we will get a positive result there.
“It’s gonna be a tough encounter against Maritzburg United, they are down in the relegation zone, and are obviously looking to get out of it.
“So it’s going to be another tough encounter. It’s always tough going to Maritzburg, but it’s an encounter that we will be prepared for. Obviously, we are still bruised but we’ll give our all, it’s important that we try to get a positive result.”
