Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi has revealed there is still one aspect of their game that needs to improve.

Sundowns made it two wins from two DStv Premiership matches in 2021 after defeating Baroka FC 2-0 thanks to second-half goals from Lyle Lakay and Themba Zwane.

Despite claiming a win and a clean sheet, Mnqithi still expressed his concerns with the side's decision-making in the final third.

“Our attacking third still needs a lot of attention. In the final third, we mess around a lot and never really create opportunities in moments where we could and our middle third, at times we give a little bit more space to the opponents," he told SuperSport after the game.

“Like for instance [Goodman] Mosele had a little bit more time, [Manuel] Kambala had more time at times to be able to dictate the game and you don’t want to allow that at Sundowns and our transition from defence to attack is not as lethal as you would want.

“There are moments where we regain possession, but we not immediately looking to exploit the spaces behind the defence but generally there are big improvements in the group but we still have to work a little bit harder."
