Mngqithi not happy with three goals


Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi praised the side's second-half display against TS Galaxy, but felt they should have scored more goal.

Sundowns passed the 50-point mark in the DStv Premiership and extended their lead to 18 points at the summit after Khuliso Mudau, Haashim Domingo and Shalulile's goals as the latter found the back of the net for the first time in four matches.

However, Mngqithi was not happy with the first-half performance but did not the second-half improvement and felt his side should have won by a bigger margin, especially considering they played 70 minutes of the match with an extra man.

"I think we played very well. First half we lost too many balls unfortunately," the Masandawana mentor told SuperSport TV.

"The red card also assisted us. we were playing against a very good team but I was very unhappy with the amount of pressure and intensity we put on their centre-backs even when they were one man down.

"First half in particular because they gained a lot of confidence in that space and we lost far too many balls. We could have easily been caught on the counter-attack.

"But second half we improved the structure. Haashim [Domingo] and Kapinga had very good moments. Very happy for Divine Lunga to have such a nice assist and also very happy for Peter to score his goal because this was very important for him to keep going and gain his confidence because his confidence was getting low.

"An impressive performance second half but still not happy we only scored three goals. If we were more incisive in our passing game we could have scored more goals but we were playing against a very good team so we must give credit to them.

"I think it was a good performance from our group and unfortunate for them to get a red card."
