Cape Town - Polokwane City coach Kosta Papic has backed his defence following their lacklustre performance against SuperSport United.

According to KickOff, a brace from Kingston Nkhatha along with Jeremy Brockie and Dove Wome put City’s chances to bed when the two sides met in the Nedbank Cup last-32.

Papic was quick to defend is backline despite the 4-1 thumping with City scoring first through Rendani Ndou.

"When the attacker misses a chance, nobody is saying anything. But when a defender does a mistake, everyone is complaining about defence," said Papic.

"We must be realistic in football... football is about 11 people on the field and the other side is also 11 people. 

"If you not scoring and you attack the defender and this is not supposed to be."

And things won’t get any easier for Rise and Shine as they travel to Soweto over the weekend to take on Orlando Pirates in a PSL tie.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
