Speaking to the media at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi, the Arrows coach said his team committed basic errors and wasted opportunities.
“I think we wasted too much scoring opportunities. We had chances but we did not use them well. We need to attack with more composure,” said Mngqithi.
He was upset with the goal which Free State's Enva Wilters created for Ghanian striker Abdul Basit Adam in the 10th minute of the match.

“We committed an error which we actually knew could happen and planned at training to avoid. It was unfortunate that we did not watch Enva on the right and also (didn't track) the striker when he scored,” he said.
The coach is hoping the KwaZulu-Natal club can turn their poor form around.
“It is disappointing when we sometimes commit silly mistakes. There were some strikers that were not present and I believe that we are still going to improve,” said Mngqithi.
