Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was left ruing the 'cruel' nature of his side's 1-0 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday evening.

The Brazilians looked to have done enough to secure a point against the Premiership champions-elect as they entered second-half injury time with the scores still level pegging.

However, Bernard Parker managed to bundle the ball over the line in the 94th minute via a ricochet after Denis Onyango had initially saved from the forward's effort.

The result saw Sundowns slip to third in the standings on goal difference after Orlando Pirates hammered SuperSport United 4-1 on the same night.

Sundowns' hopes of snatching the win themselves were severely hampered when Siyanda Zwane was sent off for a second bookable offence on 90 minutes, and Mosimane admits he was disappointed with not only his side's lack of consistency in the game, but also the officiating in the PSL throughout the campaign.

“We created chances, we got a red card - it was a red card, a second yellow, but there's no consistency in the game," he said.

"It's unbelievable how football works sometimes. We need to have consistency: in Mbombela there was supposed to be consistency in the way we conceded a goal, and in the way we scored at the end.

"And I think there needed to be consistency in the manner in which my player got a red card to another incident - you know the story.

"It's sad, football is sad. And I can't speak. You know what happens when I speak; it's sad."
