Pitso: We Lacked Firepower

Speaking after his side's 1-0 loss to Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane believes his side lacked the fire power to trouble Pirates.

Mosimane's side failed to create any clear cut opportunities throughout the 90 minutes, but Pitso believes the loss of some key players did not help them tonight.

"It's not a wobble, it's a wobble when you don't understand why, we know why we lost the match," said Mosimane.

"We made a elementary mistake at the back, one man scored against three people, I think it's a lesson learnt for Mashaba, that he must not only look at the ball, he must also know where his opponent is, it's ok he will learn from that.

"He's been playing well, unfortunately you could see in the second half, he was not himself, because that has dented his spirit a little bit but he'll learn from experience.

"But we have to be honest, we lacked the fire power upfront to give problems , I'm not saying we didn't attack, they defended well and we had our opportunities.

"But when you miss Alje Schut, you could with corner kicks and set pieces, we could get something, they (Pirates) were vulnerable there, we could get something, we missed Schut and his leadership and obviously I don't want to talk about Khama (Billiat) because we know the story, we missed him.

"We gave our best, we fought, we still believe that we at least deserve a draw, Pirates fought hard, we accept that we lost and it's okay."
