Cape Town - Cape Town City captain Thamsanqa Mkhize admits the Absa Premiership outfit have been wasteful this season and allowed too many games to get away from them.

The Mother City club have not won a league game since August and parted ways with coach Benni McCarthy over the weekend, which means they will be led by interim coach Vasili Manousakis when they clash with Polokwane City on Wednesday.

City currently find themselves down in 13th position in the standings with only one win out of nine, but a win could lift them to ninth.

"Past results do not do justice to how well we've played. The boys have delivered smart football without reward, that is due to our own doing," Mkhize was quoted as saying by IOL website.

"We have thrown away points once too often through silly mistakes and that must now change. We must not take the foot off the pedal when we have the upper hand, we must concentrate for the full 90 minutes.

"We haven't won in a long time so it's very important and crucial for us to stay positive and to keep on working hard, and to keep on making sure we keep on working as a team and grinding out a result."
