Coach Pitso Mosimane says he was pleased with his side’s effort in our first defeat of the Absa Premiership season, which came against log leaders Kaizer Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
We conceded early and had to chase the game and it the end Chiefs ran out 2-0 winners, but the coach said it wasn’t for a lack of trying.
“We lost a tough game. There were a lot of positives and negatives. A game that is very competitive, from beginning to the end. We could have played until tomorrow without scoring. I thought we missed a lot at FNB and this thing came back and we missed a lot of goals,” the coach explained.
He gave credit to the team and felt that if we had converted our chances, the result could have told a different story come full time.
“I am not happy we lost, but not unhappy in the manner the players fought to win the match. We must accept the things as they are. We tried to win, to score, but we missed a lot,” he said.
“It was an evenly balanced game and it wasn’t as free flowing. The attendance was good and it went well and it was expected. We did well with our preparations for the game. It was unfortunate that we missed a lot of chances.”
Mosimane will now prepare for our next fixture against Chippa United in the quarterfinals of the Telkom Knockout on Sunday.
