Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane believes that Morgan Gould needs to work on his distribution from defence.

The SuperSport United central defender started the encounter against Ghana at FNB Stadium on Wednesday, playing alongside two different partners in Aaron Mokoena and Siyabonga Sangweni.

Mosimane feels that the partnership between Gould and Sangweni did not work and has challenged the former to work on his game.

"I think Morgan played well, but his distribution needs to improve," the former Bafana Bafana assistant coach said at a press conference after the match. "He still has to learn some of the things.

"He always takes the ball back all the time and I think that Morgan and Siyabonga Sangweni didn't play well together in central defence.

"It was better when it was Aaron Mokoena and Morgan, but things will get better."

Mosimane was pleased with the performance of his attackers on the night, stressing the point that Katlego Mphela is not a lone forward.

He added: "I'm a little bit happy because we have firepower upfront.

"I said earlier that I will put more firepower upfront, because I don't like Katlego (Mphela) isolated, so there are a lot of positives going into the future awaiting our first AFCON qualifier against Niger on September 4."
