Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town head coach Roger de Sa rued his side's lack of concentration after two goals in five minutes saw Orlando Pirates walk away with a 2-1 win at Cape Town Stadium.

Despite having the mighty Buccaneers on the back foot for most of the encounter, a five minute second-half brace by Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro secured all three points for the away side,

Nathan Paulse did manage to pull one back for the Urban Warriors, but De Sa feels it was a sin to gift the Soweto giants two goals after the all their efforts.

"There was about five minutes of madness for us there and it cost us," he told SuperSport after the game.

"They [Pirates] are a good team with good players and if you give them half a chance, they are going to take it.

"Apart from that I thought we gave as good as we got. There were moments we were better than them, we certainly had more chances on goal and we have to learn from that and take those chances [in the future].

"I think that was the difference, that little bit if quality in the final third from Pirates.

"But they were on the ropes in the last 15-20 minutes and just holding on. It was not like a Pirates team that I would imagine, but they did the job. They came here and got three points and we got nothing. But overall I thought our performance was not bad."
