Cape Town - Pitso Mosimane says Mamelodi Sundowns were hard done by in their goalless draw with Bloemfontein Celtic as a disallowed goal cost them three vital Absa Premiership points.

The two teams played to a goalless draw at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Wednesday evening, but the Brazilians mentor feels the referee made the wrong call in disallowing a goal scored by Lebohang Maboe late in the second-half.

The defending champions have managed just two victories from their opening six matches of the 2018/19 season.

"We tried, we controlled the game and we did well. It's just sad because Lebo (Lebohang Maboe) scored the goal. We won the game," Mosimane told SuperSport in the post-match interview.

"Mshishi (Themba Zwane) is not interfering with play, he's not even touching the ball. We won the game, it's sad but what can we do."

Mosimane continued: "You know when we lost in the semi-finals of the MTN8 Cape Town City scored with an offside goal. We are out of the MTN8 and they won the Cup. It's true, it's a fact.

"As long as we play well, control the game, we show dominance we have a chance to score. It was a good game, I'm happy for my friend Steve (Komphela), he's hanging in there and doing very well."
