Cape Town - Polokwane City coach Luc Eymael bemoaned his team's failure to convert their chances after the 1-1 draw with Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday.

Rise and Shine had multiple scoring opportunities, but were unable to get their first win of the season at the Cape Town Stadium.

Nathan Paulse put Ajax ahead in the third minute, before Thobani Mncwango equalized for City from the penalty spot in the 62nd minute.

"I think we have to win this game. Certainly we had a big lack of concentration in the fifth, sixth minute," Eymael told SuperSport.

"I can't say we conceded a stupid goal, but everybody was involved. It took us a bit of time to get back into the game, but after we controlled the game we were better.

"In the second-half when we get the red card, we equalised from the penalty but I wonder what we need exactly to score. Because we created I think 9 or 10 chances.

"If I count the chances we created against Cape Town it is nine, last week it is five against Wits. It's difficult hey, to win a game like that. But we are working on that.

"Unfortunately what can we do? What can the coach do? He cannot score in place of the players."
