Downs un­beaten record only a dec­o­ra­tion - Pitso

Observer on Saturday - - Sport - Sport24

Mamelodi Sun­downs coach Pitso Mosi­mane says their un­beaten streak in the ABSA Pre­mier­ship means noth­ing be­cause the Brazil­ians have recorded too many draws.

The Tsh­wane out­fit are the only side in the Pre­mier­ship that are yet to lose a match since the 2018/19 sea­son started, but Mosi­mane feels the record is use­less as they have dropped a lot of valu­able points.

The de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons have man­aged to grind ten points af­ter seven games and are six points be­hind lead­ers Bid­vest Wits, who have played two more games than the Brazil­ians.

"What are we go­ing to do with un­beaten? You play 30 draws and you sit on 30 points‚ you are rel­e­gated! 30 points is rel­e­ga­tion," Mosi­mane said, as quoted by Sowe­tan­Live web­site.

"You didn't lose‚ we clap hands for you, but you are rel­e­gated. You can be un­beaten and still be at the bot­tom of the log.

"So that's why I al­ways say if you gave me the op­tion of three goal­less draws‚ I'd rather take one win of 2-0 and lose the other two matches. At least then I've got two goals.

"What am I go­ing to do with this un­beaten record? Does it help me? It's only dec­o­ra­tion.

"There have been too many draws‚ that's right‚ but some of them we should have con­verted into wins."
