Taking a break from our League games, we entertained Mamelodi Sundowns in the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup at King Zwelithini.

We started the game at a high tempo as we had decided to do before the game.
Getting the first goal through Philane Shange gave us the reward we deserved for our dominance in the first half.

But, once again, we allowed the opposition to come back into the game by not converting our chances and conceding a soft equaliser just before half time.

With the quality Sundowns possess, we allowed them too much time on the ball and did not apply the necessary pressure in our own  half.

In  my opinion, the scoreline at the end of the game does not truly reflect how well we played and how much we put them under pressure for the majority of the game.

However, it was definitely positive to see the players try their best but at the end of the day it was individual mistakes that cost us the game.

We are now looking forward to Wits next weekend at Umlazi in our  PSL encounter.
