Reading Time: 2 minutes

Highlands Park head, Owen Da Gama, has attributed his teams defeat against Golden Arrows to poor performance from senior players. The Lions of the North succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to Arrows in an Absa Premiers clash played at Sugar Ray Xulu stadium in Clermont, Durban.

“I thought many players were not on top of their game. I thought Sekola was not on top of his game, Mbatha and others were not on top of their game,” says Da Gama.


Meanwhile,  Da Gama says he is optimistic that Rodney Ramagalela will be fit when he joins the team in July. Ramagalela has signed a pre-contract with Highlands during the transfer window last month.

Currently the Limpopo born striker is being side-lined at Polokwane City after deciding against signing a new contract with the club. Da Gama says he is a good player.

“I think he is a player with good mentality I know his from Vheda. I know personally. He doesn’t drink and smoke. He is a hard worker”.
