The journey to a 10th league title for Mamelodi Sundowns is proving to be a bumpy ride as the games come in thick and fast.
The Brazilians played out a goalless draw at home to 10 man Bidvest Wits at the Loftus Versfeld stadium. Sibususo Vilakazi and Lebohang Maboe squandered several chances in both halves that could have gotten them out of jail.
Although Uganda Cranes skipper Denis Onyango managed a second straight clean sheet, his coach Pitso Mosimane believes the missed chances cost them the three points.
“We just miss a lot of chances against Wits, even when we played them in Durban it was the same, but we move on,” Pitso said in a post-match interview.
The tough-talking Pitso also had no kind words for centre referee Tom Abongile whom he criticized for not having sent off Wits captain Thulani Hlatshwayo for a foul on Vilakazi.
“I am also going to be controversial, I don’t care, Thulani should have been sent off, I don’t think Tom deserved to be ref of the year but it’s fine am not angry,” he added.
Bidvest’s Gavin Hunt was pleased with a point; “It was an even game, compliments to all the players for a fantastic result this evening. For the squad we have, we’ve punched above our weight and we always will.”
Sundowns now have 32 points three behind table leaders Kaizer Chiefs who play on Wednesday at home to Highlands Park, a win would take them six points clear.
