Polokwane - Following their disappointing 1-all draw against Polokwane City, Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker believes that the Amakhosi forwards are still lacking composure inside the box which is the main reason they are finding it hard to get the goals flowing this season.
Amakhosi and Rise and Shine shared the spoils in an entertaining encounter at the Peter Mokaba Stadium with goals coming from Eric Mathoho and Puleng Tlolane on either side.
“I definitely think that we did well in the first half and we won it," said Parker.
“I also think we should have worked, harder, smarter and also worked consistently.
The Boksburg born attacker said he is confident that the Phefeni Glamour Boys will get better and better as the season goes on.
“We showed a lot of glimpse about our ways of playing but I think that we’ll get better and better as the time goes on.
Parker, 29, also hinted that Chiefs failed to hold on to their first half lead due to their lack of consistency after the interval and they will be looking to rectify their mistake when they face Bloemfontein Celtic in the MTN8 semi-final second leg at home on Saturday.
“Now we just have to look forward to the MTN8 semi-final second leg on Saturday and go back to the drawing board.
“But otherwise we are gelling so well and we are unbelievable and also explosive.
“We are just lacking a little composure inside the final third but as I said, we’ll get better as the season goes on.
“We create lot of chances when we play and always at the back, if we keep a clean sheet it would be better for us.”
A draw for the Amakhosi resulted in them losing their place at the log summit.
They will switch their focus to their Wafa-Wafa competition defence as they will be hoping to get pass Celtic on Saturday, August 29.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
