Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits he was happy enough to come away with a point against Mamelodi Sundowns.

A rather tame FNB Stadium encounter came to life in the final 20 minutes as both sides pushed for a winner late on, with Sundowns coming closest after Tebogo Langerman hit the post.

Amakhosi were not without their chances, though, but George Maluleka was unable to convert from a promising position, although Komphela was still pleased to have taken a point off the Premiership leaders, leaving Chiefs five points off the top.

"The game opened up a little bit towards the end where both teams wanted to grab it at the last minute and I thought there were stages where we survived as well," the coach said speaking after the game.

"There was great luck from Langerman when he hit the upright, we were lucky as well to survive that.

"There were also incidents from us, the George Maluleka chance from Shabba's pass I thought he could have taken. And a match of this calibre is a match that is won through small margins, those are the moments that determine whether you get the three points or not.

"I felt it was a more a match well calculated, we wanted to get the three points, unfortunately we couldn't score, we'll take one and go home."
