Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana admits that his team had a bad day at the office after their 3-0 loss to Wits in the MTN8 final on Saturday.

From the onset Sundowns were on the back-foot after Daine Klate scored in the first minute (and completed his brace in the 62nd minute) while Eleazar Rodgers scored in the 20th minute.

Kekana wants his team-mates to focus in their crucial CAF Champions League final first-leg clash against Zamalek on October 15.

"The game was a very tough one. As Mamelodi Sundowns players we didn't pitch up as we expected to," Kekana told KickOff.

"We need to learn from that. We lost to a very good team, Wits are good team, and they did their homework well.

"We need to lift up our heads up and try to learn from our mistakes.

"We gave the ball away on too many occasions. That was our downfall. We need to learn and move forward to our next game."
