Cape Town - Polokwane City coach Luc Eymael lamented his side's failure to secure maximum points in their Premiership encounter against Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.
Amakhosi ended their barren spell of eight games without victory, when goals by Bernard Park, Joseph Malongoane and Willard Katsande gave them the victory at the expense of the in-form City side, who could've moved up to third spot in the table with victory.
Despite clawing their way back into the game through Puleng Tlolane's 81st-minute strike, a lapse in concentration late on allowed Chiefs to claim a valuable three points.
"Our substitutes worked very well as we equalised very quickly," Eymael said in his post-match interview.
"Unfortunately we made this big mistake in defense, (when) my defender jumped like a woman over the ball - I'm sorry, I have nothing against women.
"But I'm very disappointed because we made a lot of effort to win the game. We certainly did not play badly in the beginning of the game.
"Our plan of play worked very well so we were leading 0-1. We had a chance to go 0-2, but it's the third penalty that we've missed this season! After that we allowed our opponent to come back into the game.
"If it was 0-2 (at half-time), I don't think Chiefs would have come back," he continued. "I don't understand this lack of concentration again.
"It's how many points now that (we throw away), we are losing it in the last minute of additional time. The coach can work so much, but such things you cannot control.
"We have to bounce back on Wednesday against SuperSport (United)," he concluded.
