Pretoria - SuperSport United midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane has expressed his displeasure in the manner which his side gave up their lead in the dying minutes of their Absa Premiership clash against Cape Town City last week.
Matsatsantsa shared the spoils with the Citizens after the game finished 1-1 in a ‘physical’ battle at the Cape Town stadium last Friday.
Zimbabwean striker, Kingston Nkhatha, gave the Pretoria giants a deserved lead with ten minutes to go before City’s inform skipper, Lebogang Manyama, levelled matters in the last minute of time added on.
Letsholonyane, 34, lamented SuperSport poor concentration at the critical phase of the game after dropping the much needed two points.
“We are so disappointed, another goal conceded at a critical phase of the game,” said Letsholonyane.
“And that’s what we have always worked on at training, that’s why we were so disappointed.
However, the former Kaizer Chiefs man also praised his team-mate’s second half performances’ which earned them a goal courtesy of Nkhatha.
“Yeye” insisted that Matsatsantsa capitalised on the Citizens fatigue of their previous clash against Platinum Stars where they suffered a 4-0 thumping.
“Yes we did very well in the second half, we just pressed them highly.”
“We knew that they were still tired from their game against Platinum Stars.
“We tried to force them to make mistakes and we were rewarded with a goal. That was our strength in the second half but it was just unfortunate for us not to hold on.”
Matsatsantsa will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they face Polokwane City at the Lucas Moripe stadium on Wednesday.
Kick-off is at 20:00.
