Pitso Unwillingly Admits Downs’ Weakness

The question had to be asked twice, but Pitso Mosimane admitted – rather unwillingly, that Cape Town City had found Mamelodi Sundowns’ weak spot.

After the two sides played out to a 1-1 stalemate at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday night, coach Mosimane conceded the Brazilians are vulnerable in set-pieces. 

“Ja, maybe he is right,” the coach told the media when it was pointed out that his opposite number, Benni McCarthy, had suggested Sundowns struggled to defend dead ball scenarios, which is how the Citizens initially benefited to get their equaliser.

“It is, probably (a vulnerability), if you look at our game against Chippa and you look at today (Tuesday night). He has got a fact, because he has a refence to that. What can I say? It is debatable. But I would agree with him. The fact is we conceded a goal against Chippa on a corner kick and again here. I can also count their goals and say they are not defending well. Baroka put two easy against them.”    

Downs will look to bounce back when they host AS Otoho of Congo Brazzaville on Saturday night and try to overturn a 2-1 deficit from their CAF Champions League first leg preliminary clash a fortnight ago.
