Lost the plot - think you will find reference was to the VDL game Zebras Vs South and not the Victory League game Knights Vs Zebras..

Zebras completely out played yesterday. Even at 2 - 0 down HT, they were not able to make any changes/adjustm ents. Apart from calling for free kicks every 10 mins (hand ball, pushing, off side.......) lol

Good effort by olympia. Best game for a while. could have scored several more if Bellinin hade his scoring boots on. Some good alterations by the coach before and during the game.
