Cape Town - Orlando Pirates assistant coach Tebogo Moloi admits the players only have themselves to blame after being knocked out of the MTN8 at the first hurdle.

The Buccaneers took on Ajax Cape Town in the quarter-finals at the Orlando Stadium this week but failed to convert any of their numerous chances as Ndiviwe Mdabuka's lone strike eventually proved the difference to send the Urban Warriors through to the semifinals.

And, speaking after the game, a clearly unimpressed Moloi said: "If you can't take the chances that you create you will get a result like this.

"We can't say we lost because we missed certain players. Irrespective of the personnel, we had enough chances to win it.

"It is disappointing that we lost. Some people are happy we knocked the ball around and showed good signs, but the result is what matters.

"It's not a blessing in disguise that we lost because we play everything to win everything. We want to compete and do it well."
