Davids Rues Maritzburg's Missed Opportunities

Maritzburg United coach Fadlu Davids rued his side's missed chances in their 1-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday night.

Percy Tau scored the game's only goal in the 64th minute to secure three points for the Brazilians on the night.

Maritzburg, however, did squander a number of chances in the game but Davids was pleased with the performance.

"I can't fault the players' absolutely fantastic performance from their side but we can be better in certain moments in terms of our pressing structures especially when we're pressing high up the pitch, especially not to allow them time to recycle," Davids told SuperSport after the match.

"But I said before the game that they need one moment to score and they definitely took it.

"We had opportunities to score especially with Evans [Rusike] one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Our pressing structures were good creating that opportunity for Evans.

"We didn't take our opportunities. The players stuck to the task right up to the end. They pushed Sundowns up to the end. I'm so proud of them."
