Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has insisted his side should’ve scored “four to five goals” against log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Amakhosi lost 1-0 to Masandawana on Saturday evening, with Neo Maema scoring the only goal of the night to ensure Downs’ 12th successive win – a new PSL record.

After the match, Zwane insisted his team could’ve beaten Rulani Mokwena’s men had they been more clinical ahead of the goal.

“We had a plan and our plan was for them to play he ball inside, we’re gonna get the ball there,” he told SuperSport TV.

“And from first half, we had about five of those, similar, where we get the ball and give the ball back to them.

“Final third entry, where we know we could’ve done better, poor decision-making and it happened again second half.

“Today, if we were clinical, we could’ve scored four or five goals. If you look at how many balls sometimes even Ronwen tried to play and then it hit one of our players, fell in our paths, then we just have to punish them.

“But again we [don’t]. We had numbers, 3 vs 2, 3 vs 1, the decision-making let us down again.

“It’s one of those things, it wasn’t to be but second half was far better than first half. I think first half we were a bit sluggish, we showed them too much respect.

“But second half we started with Sithebe who gave us that balance, we started now looking like we could dictate terms in the middle. It got better and better as the game progressed.”

Sundowns have now opened a massive 22-point gap to Chiefs, and lead the table by 17 points over second-placed Richards Bay, who have two games in hand.
