Johannesburg - Polokwane City assistant coach Sfiso Bengu believes his side were punished for not making the most of their chances in Sunday's league clash against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Bengu is currently holding the reins at the Limpopo outfit while head coach Kosta Papic awaits the approval of his work permit.

Rise and Shine threatened to score in the early stages of the encounter, but ended up losing 3-0 and the stand-in coach is not surprised by the result.

"We had our chances, the first 25 minutes I think we started very well. We should have scored a minimum of one goal," Bengu said in his post-match interview.

"They scored their goal when we were playing well. It's human nature, if you're playing well and you're not scoring, and the opponent scores against you, you are bound to crack and that's what happened with my team.”

"After we conceded the goal, there was a sign of some cracks and we couldn't recover."

Bengu added that he hopes his team can bounce back in their upcoming trip to the Orlando Stadium where they will face Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout last-16 on Sunday, October 4 at 20:15.

"We still have a lot of work, but we've covered a lot also and have picked up some points going forward," he continued.

"Our next opponent is Orlando Pirates next weekend. We will pick up the pieces and go back to the drawing board, so let's hope for the best result in the next game."
