Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango made a costly error against Maritzburg United, but head coach Pitso Mosimane refused to blame the Ugandan for his side dropping points.

Onyango's howler in the first half led to Maritzburg's equaliser, with Andrea Fileccia taking full advantage to slot into an empty net. The clash ended 2-2 as Maritzburg netted a late equaliser and Sundowns are now only four points ahead of second place Orlando Pirates.
"Good game of football. This is what need to give to the people at the stadium and the people watching at home," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
"Both teams pressing from the top, there's this thing of sitting back, parking buses and playing five at the back. This is how football is.
"We tried to win the match and unfortunately we couldn't win, but it's OK. Denis [Onyango] has been our best player all the time. He made a mistake and he's allowed to make that mistake, but it's part of football and Percy [Tau] could have finished it off.
"We got our tactics right, even on Sunday we got our tactics right but you must also give them credit for their inter-passing which is terrific that's why they scored the goal.
"Also, Sundowns doesn't finish their opportunities, we should have finished them. We need to be shrewd and lethal in the box and take the goal. But it's a good game of football, we don't just come pitch, we worked a little bit more harder.
