Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says it was unfortunate to have lost their encounter to an own-goal following their 2-1 loss against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

Bangaly Soumahoro's second-half own-goal proved to be the difference between Steve Komphela's side and the reigning Premiership champions.

The victory extended Amakhosi's consecutive unbeaten spell to ten consecutive games in the league whilst Mosimane's side played to their fourth consecutive game without victory in the league.

"That's it, nothing else. What else? What else? That was it, we scored an own goal," he said in post-match comments.  

"It was unfortunate because Bangaly had a great game until he made an own goal.

"I mean that's it, what else? Who was in control of the game. We lost to a very very good Kaizer Chiefs team. We lost to a very good team," he added.

Despite experiencing their worst form guide in years, Mosimane believes that his team can still retain their league title.

"Ya but it's not the end of the day I mean there is still time.

"These things do happen unfortunately we scored an own goal and maybe that's the only way they can beat us hey?.

"Ya it was one of them but it's not the only one. I don't want to talk I'm upset. Because of the securities were charging us. And the next thing you know what's gonna happen. Pitso doesn't accept the defeat.

"I accept the defeat. I went to shake Steve's hands it's no problem but when Chiefs let there securities charge at us," he concluded.
