Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane declared himself satisfied following the goalless draw against Kaizer Chiefs at Loftus Stadium on Tuesday evening.

According to the website, the Brazilians were unable to find a way past the PSL leaders, most notably due to two inspired saves from Chiefs' number-one Itumeleng Khune in the closing minutes of the clash.

And while Mosimane would have preferred his side taking one of their chances and securing the points, he was pleased with how they composed themselves on the field.

"It was a big game, it was a tough game, and you see why they (Chiefs' players) are all playing for Bafana," he said in the post-match interview.

"But we knew what we wanted, and we did well, but Khune, what a goalkeeper! He made two great saves, and it proved the difference."

On his side's tactical approach to the game, Mosimane added: "We looked organised, we looked good, and we showed the integrity of Sundowns.

"It's not easy to play in such big games, you don't get lots of chances, but we need to take them in future."

Meanwhile, Man of the Match and Sundowns' newest addition Ramahlwe Mphahlele added: "I know it was my first game, but I was just trying to enjoy myself so I can settle down. I did my job as a defender."

Speaking about the team as a unit and their mission on the day, he said: "There's only 13 games left and they are coming thick and fast, so we thought we need to help each other and you could see that with the pressing, so we're happy with that.

Mphahlele was forced off in the closing stages with injury, although he didn't seem too concerned by the severity, saying: "I think I landed awkwardly, but we'll check with the medical team and see what happens."
