Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits that now is the time for his chargers to become consistent after defeating Highlands Park.

Amakhosi travelled to Tembisa to take on Allan Freese's side and had to put in a hardworking shift against the PSL newcomers.

William Twala was brought down in goalkeeper’s box by Auguston Leonard and referee Lwandile Mfiki pointed to the penalty spot. George Lebese stepped up to the plate and made no mistake with putting the ball past Tapuwa Kapini.

The Soweto side were put to the test as they held Highlands up until Mfiki blew his whistle on the 95th minute.

“The win at Highlands Park is a good tonic for improving our performances,” reflects Komphela reflects on the club's website.

“From here on we have to further improve and be consistent.”

“We are winners,” adds Komphela, explaining what Kaizer Chiefs are all about.

“However, we remain humble irrespective of the win. We know where we want to get to.”

This result was Amakhosi’s first win in the 2016/17 PSL season.

“The win over Highlands will bring confidence to the players,” the Amakhosi coach continues.

“And, don’t forget the pride of the supporters - they deserve being able to smile'. Sure, the performance was not as crisp as we want it to be.

“We can never be satisfied, but a good result breeds improvement. We are also polishing the selection.

“Once we hit a consistent selection, we will get to perfect the type of play we desire.”

“I am proud of the lads. They show commitment and this augurs well for the future,” concludes Komphela.

Chiefs will welcome Maritzburg United in their next match.

This encounter is scheduled to take place at FNB Stadium on Saturday, September 24.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
