Pitso okay with ugly wins

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane expressed the need for his team to be content with winning ugly.

In their last five league games, Sundowns have lost twice, won one and drawn two.

Mosimane looked back to the draws against Platinum Stars and Mpumalanga Black Aces as games that could have gone the other way, had they been more focused on the win.

In their most recent league encounter, a 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs, the performance was worthy of maximum points, according to Mosimane.

The Brazilians next take on bogey side Platinum Stars in Rustenburg on Sunday.

"If we played like we did against Chiefs we should be able to win the game, the only thing was that against them our best wasn’t good enough," Mosimane told Football411.

"Against Platinum Stars we need to know that the performance is not the result."

The defeated former champions are still in the running for a second spot in the Premiership standings.

"There is still opportunity for the second position. We just need a consistency in how we manage the game," he added.

"We need to rise to the level of a championship side."

With two key defenders, Alje Schut and Siyanda Zwane, out through injury and suspension respectively, Mosimane said they had enough quality on the bench to make up for it.

Mosimane said: "We have enough defenders our defence is not an excuse we have Schut, Zwane suspended. We have Wayne Arendese and we have Ramahlwe Mphahlele, and Asavela Mbekile."
