Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was critical of the way Ayanda Dlamini delayed the game, claiming Baroka 'breed' goalkeepers for time-wasting.
Sundowns failed to take advantage of Kaizer Chiefs' loss to Bidvest Wits after they suffered a 1-0 defeat to the Limpopo outfit on Sunday night.

There were a couple of issues that had Mosimane irritated, including Baroka substitutes taunting Motjeka Madisha from the stands and Dlamini's time-wasting.
“A Baroka player disrespected Madisha which was not good and most especially the players on the bench who were sitting there. You know, you are disrespecting somebody who was playing whilst you are sitting in the cold there in the stands," Mosimane told SuperSport TV.
“I don’t think it’s good, it’s bad. It’s not a good thing to do. But it’s okay, it’s part of football, we don’t have to focus more on that. That is not what made us not to score. We didn’t score because we got the opportunities to score, we did not. We got the opportunities.
“Ja, but this one was a different one. They have got Elvis Chipezeze who was a master of sitting, of killing the game. This one I don’t know his name, I think Baroka they breed them hey.
“They breed these ones who don’t allow the play to go. But it's okay they have to do what they have to do to survive. It’s okay. It’s not what made us lose. What made us lose is not marking in the box. But we keep going, this thing has a heartbeat. It’s still going. We’ll see how it goes,” Mosimane stated.
Mosimane insists he was not aware of the result betweent Wits and Chiefs before his side took on Baroka at Dobsonville Stadium.
“I don’t know. I did not know the score because if you look at the game and your emotions, your mood changes to that game immediately. So I don’t know if they knew, I can’t know everything, probably they knew, you know players."
