The Mamelodi Sundowns coach could only express his discontent following his side's draw against Platinum Stars on Saturday

Mamelodi Sundowns and Platinum Stars played to a 1-1 draw during a PSL clash on Saturday, leaving Brazilian's coach Pitso Mosimane fuming about the inability of his striker's to take clear-cut chances in front of goal.

Mosimane's charges created many opportunities but failed at the last hurdle on too many an ocassion for the coach.

"We came here, we did what we were supposed to do. We dominated. We showed we are a strong team, but we should show with the results to be honest," Mosimane said after the match.

"We drew the first blood with a goal, and I thought that was what we needed. I made changes to stabilise the midfield, which worked out well.

"In front of goal, we should have scored. I think we deserved to have won this game. We came here, to a team that is third. We gave it away, we should have won it. We dominated, we should have won this game, nothing else.

"How many one-ones [do you need]? The strikers can't complain about chances. What can I do, I have to fix it. Next year I must also try and get people who can finish in front of goals.

"You see I'm huffing puffing with the strikers, I'm rotating them. I don't even know who must start on Tuesday. Ja, lucky packet we'll see," Mosimane concluded.

Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson echoed his counterpart's words, as the coach believes that Dikwena should have put their opponents to the sword after dominating the majority of the encounter.

"I think it's two points dropped because when they lost their defender and we lost our striker, we dominated the game. I think we dominated a lot of the game," he said.

"In the second-half I thought the ball just didn't fall for us, because, six defenders against four attackers - we just couldn't get through.

"I'm happy for the boys, they played against a quality team in Sundowns. And they were able to make more passes than Sundowns were able to make. And that shows that's the type of football we want to play."
