Tembo: This Is One Game We Didn't Deserve To Lose

SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo was pleased with the overall performance from his charges in the 3-1 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Tembo's charges were reduced to 10 men after just seven minutes after Guily Manziba was given his marching orders for a dangerous challenge on Siphelele Mkhulise.

Despite conceding three goals in the first, Tembo could not fault the players for their effort throughout the game.

"This is one game we didn't deserve to lose," Tembo told SuperSport after the game.

"The way we played. We started very well. I think before they even scored we could have been 3-0 up. We had two good chances and the red card also didn't do us any justice.

"I should give credit to the players. They played very well. We worked very hard without the ball. It was only in a space of ten minutes that they scored those three goals through our lapse in concentration.

"Overall performance, we played very well. We just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. I can't fault the players.

"I told them this is one game where you need character. Players with hearts. I told them we've lost the first half so let's go out there and win the second half. And that's what they did. I told them we've got to go out there and show character and fight.

"We needed a little bit of speed to break. That's what Jones did very well. And he could track back. And Jones gave us that. We had to move Bradley more central. It was Gabuza's first start in close to four months. I think we played very well in the second half."
