Johannesburg - Polokwane City striker Rodney Ramagalela has admitted that he should have done better with his saved penalty kick that coasted Rise and Shine three points following their defeat to Kaizer Chiefs at the weekend.

Chiefs returned to winning ways after they dispatched City 3-2 in a gruelling Absa Premiership encounter at the FNB stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Willard Katsande, Joseph Molongoane and Bernard Parker were on target for the Phefeni Glamour Boys while Ramagalela and Puleng Tlolane found the net for the Limpopo based outfit.

Ramagalela hinted that the Amakhosi forced them to play from their own half as they failed to launch the attacks, on the Chiefs territory, for the most parts of the game.

“Taking a penalty is not an easy thing to do on the field of play,” Ramagalela lamented.

“I believe that Brilliant Khuzwayo guessed right and went straight where I was shooting the ball to and managed to save it. It happens to the best as well not only me.

“For us it was also not easy to score first because Chiefs were pressuring us. They were forcing us to defend from our own half which made things tougher for us to go forward.

“But after we scored first we thought that we could win the game but unfortunately it was not meant to be, they came back strongly in the second half and scored most goals than us.”

Rise and Shine will battle against SuperSport United in their next league game at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday while Chiefs travels to Durban to face Lamontville Golden Arrows.
