Cape Town - University of Pretoria coach Sammy Troughton admits his side's lack of discipline lost them the game against Kaizer Chiefs.

It was Siphiwe Tshabalala free-kick that separated the sides in the second half which gave Amakhosi a 1-0 victory.
According to Soccer Laduma, Troughton believes his side should have at least come away with a point but the frailties of their defence and silly challenges haunted them.
“I was happy with the performance and proud of the guys, but discipline lost us the game,” said Troughton.
“Giving away silly free-kicks, three in a row in the space of five minutes, tackling from behind when we should have been patient.
“I thought the performance deserved at least a point, but the reality in this game is that if you are not disciplined and don’t take your chances you end up with nothing.”
AmaTuks are in 10th position and are sitting comfortable on 30 points but with five games left, there is however still time for the rest of the PSL to give the university side a scare if they were to lose a few games.
