Vermezovic: Break a worry

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic has admitted he is worried his team will lose momentum during their upcoming break.

Amakhosi were eliminated in the first round of the Telkom Knockout by Platinum Stars, and will therefore be sitting on the sidelines while the last-eight teams fight for a place in the semi-finals this weekend.

A short international break follows the TKO fixtures, which means Chiefs' next match is only on 19 November, when they host Santos at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

"I'm just concerned about this long break. This weekend, there will be Cup games and I'm hoping that the team will not lose momentum as we are no longer part of the competition," the Serbian told the official PSL website.

"We also have the international (FIFA) break coming soon and a lot of our players will be out on national team duty.

"Bafana will play here (in Port Elizabeth) soon, and three days later they will be playing in Zimbabwe. A lot of our players will be involved in that game. I'm just hoping there won't be any injuries."

Vermezovic's comments came after Chiefs were held to a goalless draw at Maritzburg United on Tuesday night.

On the game itself, he stated: "We created a lot of chances tonight, but we could not finish them.

"Sometimes I just have to sit down and count the number of opportunities we are not scoring, it's disappointing. We need to be more composed and take our chances."

Vermezovic was, however, pleased with his players' overall performance, adding: "I think this was one of our better games this season.

"We were organised, we created space but we still couldn't score."
