Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns mentor Johan Neeskens felt his team had the better of the chances in their derby with SuperSport United.

The Tshwane rivals laboured to a goalless draw on Wednesday night, with Downs hitman Nyasha Mushekwi heading against the cross bar at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

"Over the full 90 minutes it was not the greatest game," said Neeskens, whose men nevertheless halted a three-game losing streak.

"They (United) were better in the first 50 minutes. We were very nervous in our passing, although we had a good chance when we had a header hit the cross bar.

"We tried in the second-half. We had more of the ball and the commitment was good. Overall I think we had the better of the chances.

"We are disappointed as we wanted all of the points but that's football," concluded the Dutch legend.
