Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane sang the praises of his
team's attack, despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Platinum Stars in
According to the Football411.com website, Sundowns are in 11th spot on the Premier Soccer League table with
24 points, 15 less than the Rustenburg outfit, who have performed
admirably this season.
Nevertheless, Mosimane believes his side should have won the game as they had more chances and dominated the match.
Stars striker Henrico Botes and Sundowns defender Alje Schut both saw red in the first half after a scuffle with each other.
"We came here, we did what we supposed to do, and we dominated no
doubt about that. And that's what we came to do but it should show in
the result," said the former Bafana Bafana gaffer.
"After the goal that we scored first I thought that would be all
we need. After the send off we made changes that made our midfield
stronger. We don't deserve where we are on the log.
"We should have won this game. We dominated against a team that
is third. We had so many chances but could not finish," he said of
misses by Edward Manqele, Teko Modise and Richard Henyekane.
"No one can complain us of not trying, our strikers are getting
the supply but they just could not finish which was the same story
against SuperSport and Swallows," he said of previous games that the
Brazilians failed to win.
"Next year I must get players that can finish. We don't take the chances and that is the sad part at Sundowns."
Stars coach Cavin Johnson was rational in his assessment of the match saying that they had as many chances to win the game too.
"We also missed chances; we also dominated at times and played
good football. They had six defenders on the field but yet we created
chances," Johnson said.
"This is two points dropped. When they lost a defender and we lost our striker we dominated the match.
"We played against a quality Sundowns and we made more passes
than they did and that is the type of football we want to play, I'm
happy with the performance on Saturday."
