Maritzburg United head coach Fadlu Davids says he can't fault his players for a 'fantastic' performance against Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Team of Choice suffered a 1-0 defeat to Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Wednesday evening.
However, Davids felt his side had plenty of chances to hurt Sundowns on the night.
"I can't fault the players. Absolutely fantastic performance from their side but we can be better in certain moments in terms of our pressing structures, especially when we're pressing high up the pitch, especially not to allow them time to recycle," Davids told SuperSport TV.
"But I said before the game that they need one moment to score and they definitely took it.
"We had opportunities to score, especially with Evans [Rusike] one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Our pressing structures were good, creating that opportunity for Evans. We didn't take our opportunities. The players stuck to the task right up to the end. They pushed Sundowns up to the end. I'm so proud of them."
