Pretoria - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has blamed his charges for their poor decision making following their disappointing goalless stalemate against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Wednesday night.

Sundowns and Aces shared the spoils in their Absa Premiership clash at the Lucas Moripe stadium in Attridgeville.

Despite putting blame on his charges, “Jingles”, however, praised his team for their fantastic performance and hunger to win the match.

“Well, we did everything we could from the first minute, but we didn’t score,” said Mosimane.

“We tried making changes because we had so many combinations throughout the game.

“But we didn’t get any result out of those combinations, what can we do about that?

“But am happy with their performance, attitude and determination but am also disappointed with their decision making.

“You could see from the start of the game that we wanted to score but their decision making was obviously not really good.

“It was a one way traffic for us.

“They sometimes shoot when they are supposed to pass the ball and sometimes pass instead of shooting.

“It let had let us down but that’s football for you.”

The Brazilians will be in action against Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals this weekend, and the former Bafana Bafana mentor believes that his players were playing with their mind focused on a cup competition as they aim to reach the final.

“We are really looking forward to the game on Saturday.”

“It was not easy for them to play while focusing on the cup game coming up.

“They really want to win the game and go to the final.’’

Sundowns' semi-final against Platinum Stars kicks off at 20:15.
