Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos coach Jomo Sono rues the mistakes his charges had made in their defeat to Platinum Stars.

Stars took a 2-0 lead courtesy of Robert Ng’ambi and Eleazar Rodgers after just 30 minutes but went a man down as the referee gave Ndumiso Mabena his marching orders.

However, Cosmos could not take full advantage Stars being down to 10-man. Cheslyn Jampies was the only one to score for Cosmos but it was a little too late for Sono’s side.

“The first goal was ridiculous.I always tell them if there’s a dead-ball than someone must stand on the ball. They all turned their back and boom, it was played,” said Sono as quoted by KickOff.

“For the second goal somebody was not picking up in the box and Rodgers had a clear header.

"But besides that they never gave us any problems. We had an advantage because we had an extra man and maybe that helped, but I’m proud of the way we came back in the second half.”

Cosmos face Bloemfontein Celtic in their next PSL fixture on Thursday, September 24.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
