Pretoria - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Bongani Zungu said the Brazilians are playing good football but their strikers are not clinical in front of goals.

Pitso Mosimane's charges and Dikwena shared the spoils [0-0] in an exciting encounter played at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace.

The 22-year-old industrious player admitted that his team-mates stuck to their game plan but failed to grab the much needed maximum points due to their failure to convert the goal scoring opportunities.

“It was a very tricky game for us as a team,” said Zungu.

“We had a good game plan of playing good football from the beginning which we did.

“But fact is, you must complement that by scoring goals for your team whenever you get those chances.

“And unfortunately we didn’t score and we couldn’t win the match but a draw is better than nothing at the end of the day."

'Ben 10' also hinted that there is no point of playing an attractive football without complementing the perfect game with goals but stressed out that they will go back to the drawing board and attempt to rectify their mistakes as a team.

“We took charge of the game from the very first whistle but up to this stage, I think we are not clinical enough in front of goals.

“But we’ll just have to go back to training and work hard on scoring goals.

“We have a lot of qualities in the team and like I said, we are playing good football.

“It’s only a matter of converting the chances we get.”
