Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka concedes that his team was second best after their 3-1 loss to Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday.
A brace from George Lebese and a goal from Bernard Parker secured the points for Chiefs while Siyabonga Dube grabbed the consolation for Arrows.
Abafana Bes'thende were up against a Chiefs side that was reeling from their debilitating 3-1 loss to Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby on Saturday.
"I think we made a lot of unforced errors," Letsoaka said after the game.
"Chiefs played very well on the day.
"They made a lot of combination play which we could not deal with, especially in the first-half.
"In the second half we came back and were a little bit organised but we unfortunately got the red card at the wrong time. After that we collapsed.
"We did pass the ball a little bit better in the second half, but we lost a lot of possession under no pressure.
"In the final third of the field we didn't make the right pass," he concluded.
