Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane says they need to shift their attention to the CAF Champions League and Absa Premiership.
The South African giants were stunned 1-0 by Lamontville Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup last 16 encounter at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
The Brazilians are now hoping to defend their CAF Champions League and Absa Premiership titles and forget about their Cup exit.
"We're trying, it's not good enough, but we'll get there. Some things happen for a reason so you've got to look on the positive side," Mosimane told SuperSport TV.
"Maybe it's okay to leave the Nedbank and focus on the Champions League and the league because it's unbelievable with the number of games and injuries [we've had].
"But I think the team that payed [today] really represented us well," 2016 CAF Coach of the Year continued.
"We're just not lucky to score, sometimes maybe we apply the wrong technique with passing and shooting, instead of shooting we pass.
"And it's anxiety. Players are human beings, this happens, but we've been in control of all the games from [the one against] Cape Town City, we've been in control," he added.
"We are in control everytime but unfortunately we are not scoring any goals."
