“It’s difficult because we had high hopes in the last game. We knew we were playing a strong team tonight. After the momentum of the last two games, we were looking forward to making the playoffs with some good form behind us. Going into a game against a top team like GT, you have to be at the top of your own game.” Faf du Plessis said.
