Kaizer Chiefs reserve team coach Arthur Zwane was left to rue his side's missed opportunities as they suffered defeat in their Soweto Derby clash on Sunday.
Amakhosi's Multichoice Diski Challenge team suffered the same fate as the seniors by going down to Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates in Vosloorus this past weekend.
A maiden goal in as early as the third minute by The Buccaneers was enough to condemn Chiefs to their third defeat of the season as they languish down in 11th position on the reserve league log table.
Zwane insisted his side was the dominant outfit on the day as he lamented the opportunities missed through the encounter, adding that a further 90 minutes would not have been enough for them to find the back of the net.
“I thought we could have won the match. If it had been a boxing encounter, we would have easily won on points. But this is football – if you don’t score, you don’t win," bemoaned Zwane on his club's website.
“It was one of those games – even if we played for another 90 minutes, we still wouldn’t have scored. It happens. We just have to move on and focus on our next MDC match.”
The Glamour Boys reserves have won just two of their games this season, with a tally of just nine points from their eight games thus far.
They next welcome Maritzburg United to the Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday afternoon at 12pm, before the first team take on Pirates in the Telkom Knockout semi-final in Durban (15h00 kick-off).
