Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his
team repeated bad habits of not being clinical after Wednesday night's 1-1 draw
with Chippa United.
Sundowns were largely in control throughout the contest and
took the lead through Lebogang Maboe.
Sibusiso Vilakazi had a chance to make it 2-0 but he spurned
As a result, Meshack Maphangule punished the Brazilians at
the death as he struck home from a corner.
'Jingles' told SuperSport TV: "We did the Sundowns
thing. Of making so many chances and not sealing it.
"I think if Vila took the chance, the game is buried.
We can talk about the ifs or the could haves, should haves. It's not what it's
supposed to be.
"We lost the two points, to be honest. I blame myself a
little bit. I should have sealed. My last sub-three minutes. We could have used
the Champions League experience and sealed it.
"It's a lesson we learn in football. Sometimes it looks
okay. We discussed. I said, 'look, I don't see any challenge here'. But then
what happened is we started to concede a lot of corners.
"That was the challenge. Then we lost Sammy Seabi with
his height. And then I made a mistake by putting on Phaka for Lebo for the last
two. Maybe I should have put on Bangaly. Ja, it's my fault."
The Brazilians are next in action on Saturday when they face
Bloemfontein Celtic in an MTN8 quarterfinal at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe
Stadium in Pretoria.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
