Sundowns claimed the bragging rights in the Tshwane derby after defeating SuperSport at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

“I think the first half was very disappointing, I think with the two goals that we conceded we could have done better. No one pressed the ball and we gave them so much space," Tembo told SuperSport after the game.

“Sundowns played better than us in the first half, they had quality possession which we didn't have. Defensively we never really tried, we never kept our shape. That was a problem.

“In the second half we changed our set-up, we played two strikers and we had better possession. I think we had that cutting edge in the final third.

“We could have done better. At the end of the day I think Sundowns was the better team, they deserve the two goals that they scored.”

Tembo also touched on his side’s injury concerns and highlighted the importance of the missing Dean Furman in midfield. 

“Injuries are getting worse and worse but we will soldier on,” added the SuperSport coach.

“We have to go back tomorrow and see who is available and who is not, who is injured and who needs treatment and then we will take it from there, but it has been a concern because we don't have Dean Furman. He made some difference in the team.

“At the end of the day we need to soldier on and use the players that we have, by January we will probably have all our players.”
