Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila head coach Joel Masutha admitted his side could not handle Kaizer Chiefs' experience and quality in the second half.
TTM have now gone eight game without a win in the DStv Premiership after suffering a 3-0 defeat to Chiefs on Tuesday evening.
Masutha felt his charges looked a bit better of Chiefs' first goal in the first half before Chiefs took over in the second stanza.
"I think again just like the last match against Arrows we conceded in the 19th minute," Masutha told SuperSport TV.
"Even today it was the 19th minute. And you try and check if the opponent tried to unpack you. But it didn't happen like that. We let the ball bounce in the box, wrong position and they got a goal.
"And from there we tried to regroup. I think after the goal we started to play a bit better. And then second half we thought we going to continue but the quality of Chiefs players and the experience as well as Nurkovic up front was too much for our players.
"And they continued scoring and we had to try and stop them from scoring many goals because we didn't want a cricket score."
