Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has praised winger Joseph Molangoane for his second-half performance in the 0-0 draw with Orlando Pirates on Saturday.

The stalemate left Amakhosi in fourth position, three points behind league leaders Baroka FC, and one place and one point adrift of the Buccaneers.

Komphela felt that Molangoane had not been influencing the game as much as he could have in the opening 45 minutes at the FNB Stadium, but was very satisfied with 'Tight's' showing in the second stanza.

"He had all these turns and tweaks in the first half, much to the delight of our supporters," Komphela told the club's website.

"But I realised that there wasn't any real threat as a result of these actions. I therefore asked him to play higher up in the second half, which worked very well and he was much more threatening. This also boosted his confidence and that of the team."

The Glamour Boys now turn their attention to the Telkom Knockout as they ready themselves for the first-round encounter at home with AmaZulu on Saturday night.

Kick off is at 20:15.
