Khune: Chiefs must work hard

Cape Town - Itumeleng Khune admits Kaizer Chiefs need to work on all aspects of their game after struggling both in defence and attack following their 1-1 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic.

Helder Pelembe opened the scoring for Phunya Sele Sele in this weekend's MTN8 semi-final first-leg with brilliant strike after 34 minutes, before Bernard Parker missed a golden chance to draw the sides level after rifling a penalty over the crossbar just six minutes later.

The Bafana Bafana international would make amends after hammering home a long-range drive shortly after the hour mark to eventually rescue a draw, while also taking a priceless away goal back to Soweto for the return fixture.

Khune, though, knows the Glamour Boys could have left the Free State Stadium with much more, had it not been for their shortcomings across the board - something that plagued them in their goalless Absa Premiership draw against 10-man Chippa United last week.

"We told our supporters they were going to see goals. Unfortunately we got one and missed a penalty," Khune said after the game.

"If we could have converted that we could have taken home a comfy lead.

"It's just unfortunate and we have to go back to the training field and work hard on scoring and keeping clean sheets."
