Sundowns suffered their first league loss of the season with a 2-0 defeat to AmaZulu last night, adding to the misery of their Nedbank Cup last-32 elimination at the hands of Chippa United in Port Elizabeth on the weekend.

Mosimane, however, is mindful to keep things in perspective.

"It's sad hey because we lost obviously," Mosimane said after the clash with Usuthu at Loftus Versfeld in Tshwane.

"It is not the usual feeling after going for such a long time without losing a game in the league. But it happens, it had to come one day. It is the night, it came tonight. We have to accept it. We have to move on.

"It is unfortunate we scored an own goal and we conceded from a corner kick. For me a coach, I have to dig deeper because it is nearly the same goal conceded in Port Elizabeth. It means there is something not right. We need to fix it."

He added: "It's part of football. These things happen in football. It happened to Manchester City losing three games in a row. So these things happen. You have to accept it, otherwise we should not be in football. We can't throw in the towel now because we lost our first league game in a year."

The Absa Premiership champions, who are three points behind log leaders Bidvest Wits two games in hand, next host Ivorian outfit ASEC Mimosas in a CAF Champions League tie at Loftus on Friday (21h00).
