Cape Town - SuperSport United captain Dean Furman says it was a let-down to allow Kaizer Chiefs to equalise in their 1-1 draw at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday.

Thabo Mnyamane gave Matsatsantsa the lead on the half-an-hour mark before George Lebese levelled the scores a minute later.

Furman does not want a repeat of their lapse in concentration against Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout semi-final on Saturday.

"We worked so hard with the coach on critical phases, to stay tuned in at critical times," he told SuperSport.

"I think to let in a goal 30 seconds after working so hard for the opening goal is a major disappointment for us. So that is something we really have to focus on. Those critical phases, normally we are very good at them. So to let in a goal like that was a bit of a sucker punch.

"I think our quality in the first half was actually very good. The game became a bit scrappy in the second half. Overall the main disappointment, we lost our focus after scoring a goal and let them back into the game so easily.

"Another huge game, they're coming in thick and fast at the moment. It is a huge month for us and there is nothing bigger than a semi-final at this stage against Pirates."

Stuart Baxter's men next welcome Orlando Pirates to the Mbombela Stadium in a Telkom Knockout semi-final clash on Saturday, then face league-leaders Bidvest Wits away.

Kick off is at 18:00.
