Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits his side has picked up too many draws this season, following a goalless stalemate with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Amakhosi played to a 0-0 draw with fellow title hopefuls Sundowns at the FNB Stadium as neither side managed to find the all-important breakthrough in front of goal.

Reflecting on the result of their first match of 2016, Komphela told the club's official website: "Both teams had opportunities to steal it.

"It was the first match of the year and if you look at it, we take the point."

However, the Chiefs coach was quick to point out that yet another draw has left him somewhat disappointed.

"We have been hard done by. We now have seven draws, that's too many," he added.

"Often the opponent's goalkeeper was the difference between a win and a draw.

"On the other hand, it's also a matter of composure on our side."

Rising star Lorenzo Gordinho picked up the Man of the Match award for his performance in Saturday's Premiership clash, having collected the very same accolade in their previous match.

Komphela praised the young defender's recent performances, but also urged him to remain humble and focused on continuing to improve.

"The boy has talent and only through playing matches he can grow," Komphela said.

"However, it's important for him to keep his feet on the ground, as they say: 'Humility breads success'."
