Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane wants his charges to convert at least "40% of the chances they create in match situations".
Despite claiming an all-important 2-1 victory over Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday at the Cape Town Stadium, the Brazilians could have netted five to six goals on the night.
The former Bafana Bafana mentor admits he has not been satisfied with the conversion rate of his side in the current campaign.
“Honestly speaking, I am not happy with our conversion rate in terms of the ratio of chances made and goals scored,” he said at the post-match press conference.
“But if you look at the numbers of goals we’ve scored, comparative to the log and the goal differences, I should be saying ‘it’s okay’. It’s not great, but it’s okay. But we need to score more.
“We’ve missed a lot of chances, but I’d rather create chances and miss than play without having created any chances. So, it’s okay, let them miss, but they will score sometimes.
“If we can convert 40% of the chances we make, we should be okay.”
Next on the cards for the log leaders are Orlando Pirates (5th on the log) at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.
2018 could not have started any better for the Buccaneers as they convincingly beat Baroka FC 3-1 in their first Absa Premiership match of the year last weekend.
Pirates have a chance to move into the top four with a victory while maximum points for Sundowns will reassure their dominance at the summit of the log.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
