Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy slammed his players for the "unprofessional" way they dropped two points against SuperSport United.
City and United and City played to a thrilling 3-3 draw at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday in a match that also saw the return of midfielder Thabiso Nodada, who scored a brace.
But McCarthy was left fuming after his side conceded two goals due to schoolboy errors in defence.
"If I had a bundle of players to pick from, half of them that played today won't play again in the team, that's how ill-disciplined they were," McCarthy said after the match.
"They were very unprofessional. Because at this level when you get an opportunity to beat a team, you beat them, you don't become sloppy, you don't become irresponsible.
"You don't not do what you are supposed to do and that you get paid to do. You don't do it because you like me or you don't like me. You get paid to play football, you get paid to defend when you are supposed to defend. You get paid to score goals.
"The money you earn every month isn't for free, this is their job."
City lost their previous league match 2-1 to Kaizer Chiefs, adding to the significance of the points dropped against Kaitano Tembo's side.
