Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his side will focus on finishing in the top eight after the Brazilians were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup on Sunday afternoon.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, despite taking the lead through a Teko Modise goal, Mosimane saw his side conceded two goals in 16 minutes as Thuso Phala and Robert Ng'ambi scored for Platinum Stars to win the quarterfinal match at Loftus Stadium 2-1.

Mosimane admitted his players were not at their best on the day, but they will now focus on finishing in the top eight of the Absa Premiership.

“We are out of the cup now and that is the way it goes. We will turn our attention to the league and finishing inside the top eight,” said Mosimane after the match.

Referring to the game and the goals his side conceded, Mosimane added, “I think my players were ball watching, I could not see clearly but it looked that way.

“They scored from a set-piece which SuperSport did Saturday," he said of defending champions SuperSport United who beat Maritzburg United 2-1 in their quarter-final clash on Saturday.

“But that is how it goes, that is how teams can win or lose games and you can see why they are second on the league."

“We had our chances to win the game too but it did not go our way. I am happy for Teko because he scored but the result did not go our way, but his confidence is back and he is a good player for us.”
