Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa was less than satisfied with his side's performance after a 2-2 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic at Cape Town Stadium on Friday evening.
The Urban Warriors looked to be heading for a 2-1 defeat before earning a penalty in the closing stages of the contest. Nathan Paulse converted the spot-kick to rescue a share of the spoils, and De Sa later admitted his side's defensive showing was a cause for concern.
"I thought we could have lost it, to be honest," De Sa was quoted as saying by KickOff.
"We could have won it too, but it was one of those... I wasn't happy with the defending, we were poor and gave them [Celtic] too many chances.
"We are young boys but we need to stop being naive and allowing teams to catch us out."
The former Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits mentor also highlighted his side's failure to make their possession count, while he conceded they were fortunate to be awarded a penalty at the death.
"We've got to work on a lot of things, but in the end we'll take the point," he added.
"I thought we were fortunate [with the penalty] - those decisions are sometimes given and sometimes not.
"But again, we had all the possession; all the passing; all the pretty stuff but not creating enough chances in the end, which was disappointing."
