Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela feels his side should have emerged victorious from their F.A.M.E Charity Cup clash with Baroka FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
As it stood, it was the newly promoted side and not the mighty Glamour Boys that claimed a 3-0 win from the penalty shoot-out at the end of the highly-contested pre-season match that had ended 0-0.
Chiefs had beaten Magesi FC 2-0 earlier in the day to claim a place in the final and despite starting the better of the two sides, they could simply not find the back of the Baroka net.
They had made just three changes from the side that lost in the Carling Black Label Champion Cup last week with Brilliant Khuzwayo, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Lewis Macha coming in for Itumeleng Khune, Erick Mathoho and Hendrick Ekstein respectively.
Khuzwayo stopped Baroka's first penalty but Baroka goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke then went on to save all three Chiefs penalties, from Willard Katsande, William Twala and George Maluleka.
Speaking after the match, Komphela told SuperSport: "We lost on penalties and there's nothing you can do or say about it except that we could have won it in 90 minutes, there were a couple of times when we got into the box, we should have had more composure and hit the back of the net.
"All in all it was a good exercise, all of them got enough time to put some kilos on the legs and it's work in progress and we've got to continue in the same way."
He added: "There were a couple of things we picked up based on how Baroka played that we have to take home and rectify or try to capitalise on. You learn from each game. The rotation between Parker and Maluleka gave us something and as soon as we went for something else there were some plusses we picked up and there are a lot of things we can go back on."
