Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admitted his side's tactics were not up to scratch in their disappointing 1-0 loss to Mpumalanga Black Aces on Tuesday.
The result saw Aces go two points clear of Kaizer Chiefs at the top of the Premiership standings and three ahead of Sundowns in fourth.
The Brazilians are likely to drop further down the table as the likes of Ajax Cape Town, SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates all play their game in hand on Wednesday.
It was Downs' first loss of the season and, more disappointingly, AmaZayoni played the entire second half with just 10 men after goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane was sent off for a foul on Cuthbert Malajila just before half time.
"It is a bit disappointing, in the second-half we made the goalkeeper look very good," Mosimane said after the game.
"All the balls were floated, I tried to get combination play, but that was it, nothing else.
"We fell asleep with the corner-kick and I knew they could punish us there, we have to work harder.
"We didn't play well, our tactics were not right. First the coach needs to raise his hand.
"Why do you float in the balls if you don't have a tall striker, the guys should learn.
"Also a few mistakes, we were lucky, it could have been 2-0. Shooting from far, disappointing. Very disappointing," he concluded.
