The Brazilians took the lead at Moses Mabhida Stadium thanks to Gaston Sirino, but Gift Motupa levelled matters to salvage a point for the Clever Boys.

The result leaves Masandawana nine points behind Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs, leaving Mosimane frustrated that his charges missed a chance to close the gap further.

"Ja, a point is fair hey. Okay, we could have scored, 'Mshishi' [Themba Zwane] could have scored, I don't know who else missed the sitter, [Motjeka] Madisha hit the post, it's one of those you know," Mosimane told SuperSport TV.

"But I guess we played a very good team, it's a strong team, if you look at the team and the way it has been for the last six, seven years we are happy with a point away even though we wanted to win. We could have won, we missed the chances. I think it's a good point."

Asked about Wits' equaliser, Mosimane added: "It's written, my player [Lyle Lakay], I mean Deon Hotto is left-footed, he doesn't even have a right foot, he tried to shoot here with a right-foot and the ball went the other way.

"But you know [the] players, they are not listening. I told Lyle, he [Deon Hotto] is only left-footed. [Sifiso] Hlanti is left-footed, he's never kicked with his right, the same as him and you can say the same with [Tebogo] Langerman, he's left and he doesn't kick with the right as well.

"I mean it's basic principle but he says, "oh, he went a little bit to the right", I said, "no, he has to drop a shoulder, what do you think he's going to do?" and then he brought the ball [cross] there.

"But I don't want to put it on him [Lakay] for not blocking him [Hotto] there, also Madisha knew, when the guy is left-footed there, he also knows that Hotto is left-footed, so why [did] he let him stay behind him? So it's a collective mistake and a powerful cross and a good header, so Denis [Onyango] cannot stop that."
