Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy believes his side's lack
of finishing was to blame for Tuesday's 1-0 Premiership defeat to new log
leaders Orlando Pirates.
After a contentious first half goal by Citizens striker
Lehlohonolo Majoro was ruled out for a foul on goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands, the
Sea Robbers won the contest courtesy of Thabo Qalinge's late second half
McCarthy told Supersport, "We did fairly well. We had
complete control of the game but when you don't take your chances and you have
the kind of referee on such a day then it's always difficult.
"Best team at the end of the day won. They (Pirates)
are in good voice and spirit. They got a lot of quick players upfront and they
were clinical when it mattered the most.
"Unfortunately, as against Kaizer Chiefs, we played
well again but in the most important areas, the guys seem start panicking, not
putting the ball in the back of the net and if you don't the ball at the back
of the net, you don't win games."
