Cape Town - Polokwane City head coach Bobbie Solomons remains rueful following his side's goalless stalemate against the National First Division side Milano United on Wednesday night.

United and City shared the spoils in an exciting Premier Soccer League (PSL) and NFD promotion playoff encounter at the Athlone stadium in Cape Town.

Although Rise and Shine dominated the game, they failed to break the deadlock despite creating plenty of goalscoring opportunities, leaving the 59-year-old tactician remorseful.

Solomons concluded that luck was just not on their side.

"I think we were very unlucky,'' said Solomons.

"We played very well and stuck to our game plan like we should. We should have been up by four or five goals in the first half. We also had great chances in the last stages of the game which we didn't take. We need a bit of luck, focus and concentration to go all the way. We did all we could but except getting the ball into the back of the net."

The former Santos mentor remained optimistic that his charges would capitalise on their home ground advantage in their remaining games of the mini-league against United and Black Leopards, respectively.

"We must make use of home ground advantage. We have always played well at home in the league. Hopefully our luck will change when we get into our home ground," he added.

Rise and Shine's next game will be against Leopards at the old Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane next Wednesday.

The winner of the mini-league between the three sides will compete in the Absa Premiership next season.
