Sundowns are still nine points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs with 11 games to go, and Mosimane is confident that they will regroup after losing to the Clever Boys

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes the absence of some of his regular players cost the team against Bidvest Wits.

The Brazilians suffered their second successive defeat in less than seven days, but Mosimane added that the available players should have done better on the night.

"You can play whole day until tomorrow, we were just not gonna put it in the back of the net," said Mosimane after the game.

"I'm reeling from all the players I'm missing. I'm missing a lot of players, but we had enough players that could have won this match. It was a tough one, but we didn't win it," he said.

Mosimane, who will lead his side away to AmaZulu next Friday, said that they just need to take their chances in their upcoming games to ensure that they bounce back.

"We have to come back, what can we do? It's difficult. This is football, it happens to big teams also. So, we have to regroup.

"We have to see what we have, who comes back, but we don't score goals enough, that's all. But it's ok. We create chances, we must just take them," added Mosimane.

Wits coach Gavin Hunt admitted that Sundowns made it difficult for them in the opening 15 minutes, but was impressed with the overall performance of his team.

"We were a much better team on the night. Sundowns are a very difficult side to play against, but we stuck to our guns," said Hunt.
