Cape Town - Pitso Mosimane believes Mamelodi Sundowns were not ruthless enough in front of goal against Chippa United.

An own goal from Mbhuyiselo Sambu, a spot kick from Teko Modise and a late strike from Rodney Ramagalela kept the Brazilians within reach of Kaizer Chiefs.

The defeat leaves Chippa 12th on the PSL standings.

“It's a funny game. We started well in beginning by putting pressure on them. We tried to get the second goal quicker but we couldn’t get it,” said Mosimane as quoted by KickOff.

“We knew they would come, but had to introduce quicker forwards - Ramagalela and Mahachi. I needed pace upfront because now they were playing in our half and it was our chance to go out.

Mosimane believes that more goals could have rattled the back of the net if they had taken their chances they created.

“In the last 10 minutes, if we could have concentrated a little bit more, we could have scored two or three more goals. But with three goals and three points, I am happy.”
