However, the former Ajax Cape Town man was pleased that they managed to score goals and also to book their place in the last eight of the competition.
“It wasn’t an easy for us coming away. You know this Cup is always about goals. We can defend as much as we can, but at the end of the day we have to score goals for us to go into the second round,” said Billiat after the game.

Billiat, who was voted man of the match for his outstanding performance on the day, scored two superb goals, but he paid tribute to his teammates who made it easy for him.
“I think it was a good game; we changed a little bit the way we played the last game, because of the way they were playing as well. So, I think we did well and credit (must go) to the team, because we worked as a team and at the end it paid off,” he said.
