Al Ahly head coach,Pitso Mosimane said that his side deserved a more positive result against Simba SC in the CAF Champions League.

Mosimane suffered his second loss as Al Ahly head coach following a narrow 1-0 defeat in Tanzania against Simba SC.

The only goal of the game came in the 31st minute when Luís Miquissone found the back of the net with a powerful finish which found the top left corner.

Despite sitting third in their group with three points, behind AS Vita Club on goal difference, the Reds still have a big chance of advancing to the next stage.

"I am now focusing on preparing the players physically and mentally for the game against El Gaish SC after the tough journey to Tanzania," he told Al Ahly’s official website.

"We will start preparing for the game against AS Vita Club after the game against El Gaish SC.

"We analyzed Simba SC very well and we decided to start the game with three midfielders, who can play both attacking and defensive roles, especially that we played in very hot weather, with high levels of humidity."

"Simba SC had a good game but we deserved a better result. We had three scoring chances in the first half as well as several scoring chances in the second half but we failed to score."

"We played two matches in the group stage and we still have four remaining matches. We will fight to secure qualification to the quarter-finals, "he concluded.
