"I spoke to the players at half-time in order to play better crosses into the box during the second half.

"We played too many crosses and I didn't ask them to do so in the absence of a target man.

"After the goal, the rhythm of the team fell a little bit and we made changes to make the team more active.

"The way we played changed during the game according to the circumstances of the game and we had more than one chance to score," Pitso added.

Al Ahly will be aiming to reclaim the league title after being pipped to the Egyptian Premier League trophy by rivals Zamalek.
