Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson attributed his side's 1-0 loss to Polokwane City as bad luck and stupid mistakes.

After a magnificent start to the season, in which Platinum Stars found themselves top of the Absa Premiership for a brief period, the defeat against Polokwane was their second in a row in the league.

The Rustenburg club went behind early through Sphesihle Nzimande's 14th-minute goal and, despite coming close on several occasions, were unable to find a way back into the game.

"When they scored their goal I think we hit the bar three or four times and we had a couple of other chances as well," Johnson told KickOff.

"It's sad, but good luck to Polokwane City, they got the three points and we have to go back and make sure that we play the game that we can play.

"The game where we showed why we are high in the log and we need to get back to that to make sure that we come out from it. We made silly errors in that game with and without the ball and it cost us.

"Now we need to go back and prepare for the next game and make sure we put in a good fight against Maritzburg at home," he concluded.
