Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund admits his side struggled in every department after crashing to a 5-2 defeat at home against AmaZulu on Sunday.

Matsatsantsa were expected to cruise to a fourth successive Premiership victory as they hosted an Usuthu outfit who had managed just one league win prior to this weekend's clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, and even opened the scoring within four minutes through Jeremy Brockie.

However, there would not be much else for the home fans to cheer for the remainder of the match as braces from Bongi Ntuli and Bornwell Mwape, as well as Marc Van Heerden's free-kick, secured the Durban club three priceless points.

Speaking after the game, which also saw Clayton Daniels head home a mere consolation for SuperSport, a downtrodden Igesund said: "We spoke at half-time to be aware of these situations that the only way to break down is through free-kicks and throw-ins.

"We fell asleep. To be honest we had too many players out of it. There are players we expected to see something from but they were not there.

"As a team and as individuals we were very bad."

The former Bafana Bafana coach was, however, full of praise for AmaZulu, adding: "Congratulations to AmaZulu. We knew they will come fighting like this and fighting for everything.

"Sometimes you can have one or two players having an off day and get away with it but when you have five or six it's a problem.

"Defensively we were shocking and conceded silly goals."
