"We dominated, we played with comfort, if I were to sum it up in a manner that is selfish one would say we played, they won, but they were also very clever," said a well-dressed Komphela at FNB Stadium.
"There was a stage where they realised Katsande is not on the ball because of pressure, so they released Mashamaite. Look the guy is experienced, their team has been together for three years.
"I think on the back of that, I still feel the comfort that had it not been for the goal that we conceded in the first half and goals that were scored from mistakes [in the last two matches] I'm sure we could have done something better.
"I'm not disappointed, I'm okay with it, but we can only do better."
