Cape Town - Maritzburg United coach Mandla Ncikazi admitted his side needs to work on breaking down defensive teams after their 0-0 draw with Jomo Cosmos.
The 46-year-old said he was happy with the way his side played and pushed for the victory but was frustrated at how deep Cosmos sat for the majority of the game.
"Very tough match, it's always difficult to play against a team that withdraws into their own half wanting to catch us on the break," Ncikazi said.
"I think we tried to play the right game, tried to play combinations.
"As the game progressed I think we got desperate trying to play on top quickly, maybe a more patient approach could have been better but you understand we're playing at home, we want to please the supporters; we want to get the results.
"But I'm not disappointed with how the team played, I'm only disappointed that we could have got the three points, but I'll take the point.
"This is not the only team who's going to sit deep; other teams are going to do the same. Let's try and penetrate better.
"If we want to take the initiative and take the games to them; more patient build-ups at the right time, go for a third-man run, go for a quality cross, maybe then the opportunities will be created."
