Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane felt his charges were not dangerous enough in the final third against Kaizer Chiefs.
The Brazilians suffered a 2-1 loss to Steve Komphela's charges at Loftus Versfeld on Tuesday evening, which saw them drop to seventh spot in the Absa Premiership standings.
Mosimane noted that his side dominated the game, but was disappointed to see that they weren't able to take advantage.
"What a thrilling game, unbelievable hey. I think we dominated. We did what we wanted to control the game, especially in the first half," Mosimane told SuperSport TV.
"But our dominance was not converted to scoring opportunities, we were not very dangerous in front of the goals. But sometimes you can win without playing well, sometimes you lose and play well. It's part of football.
"I'm so proud for the team, proud for my players. Eight against 10, no one parks the bus. That's Sundowns for you, we play football.
"We can have as less as we can on the pitch, but we have to leave our skill on the pitch and I'm proud of the guys, they did very well.
"I don't like to lose this match, but if I have to lose this match, not to anybody else except Steve. Steve deserves a chance, Steve is my brother. There's been a lot of pressure on him. We need out local black coaches on the pitch."
