Cape Town - Despite his side claiming a 2-1 win in the Tshwane derby on Sunday, Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Themba Zwane believes the Brazilians aren't clinical enough in front of goal.

First-half goals from Lebohang Maboe and Lyle Lakay were enough to secure the victory, even after Morgan Gould pulled one back for SuperSport United in the second period.

However, Sundowns were dominant in the opening stanza and their inability to convert more of their chances allowed the game to become far more nerve-racking than it should have been when Gould scored.

"As a team we did well, and we managed to stick to our plan, but I am a little bit disappointed because we didn't take our chances and because of that the game was becoming difficult for us at the end," he told SuperSport TV.

"Still, at the end of the day we managed to get the three points.

"Goal scoring is a problem that we have. We are creating so many chances, but we do not take them. We need to work on that at practise and improve."
