“They requested a friendly match, and we were just in need of minutes and legs for some players,” Mokwena said.
“We have a very big squad.
“Sometimes we play every three days without training.
“The group that’s sitting on the bench and not getting minutes on the pitch in competitive games stays far behind.
“It’s a mistake we made last season.
“So, without this group staying and putting pressure on the group that is playing, sometimes this group doesn’t even improve.
“You’ve got to have competitive minutes so that when you have these matchday minus-two and matchday minus-one sessions, they have the legs and intensity to this team playing better.
“So, that’s really the only reason behind, it’s nothing special.”
