Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana
believes Ricardo Nascimento's red card worked against them in the match with
The two teams played out to a goalless draw
at Loftus Versfeld Stadium and the Brazilians skipper feels they could have
done better if it were not for the red card.
Nascimento was controversially sent off
five minutes into the second half after showing dissent towards referee
Pitso Mosimane's side was making a return
to league action following their return from Morocco, where they played against
Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League.
Kekana told SuperSport: "It was a
tough match coming from a long trip in Casablanca, but look, we came here and
knew that they are going give us a fight.
"We were ready for the fight to be
honest, we were just unlucky with the red card, but I think we should take
lessons out of this match.
"This is a match where we needed just
one goal. We had our chances and should have used one or two. But we cannot
complain and just have to take the point and move on."
