Blom has been criticised at times this season for some reckless tackling in a bid to stamp his authority on games.

While his battling performances have also been praised, the young midfielder says he has a lot to learn as he develops his own style of play.

He told the Sowetan: “I feel like I have been reckless in some games in terms of my tackles but then I also feel like perfecting tackles comes with experience. As times goes, I am positive that I will get it right.

“Sometimes as a player you struggle with the tempo of the game and use those tough tackles to break down the opposition’s momentum. But, all in all, I understand that I have to eliminate those types of tackles because they could cost my team.”
