Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs captain and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune expressed his disappointment after his side shared the spoils with Moroka Swallows in their Premiership match at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday night.
The two Soweto rivals played to a 1-all draw in a thrilling encounter with plenty of fireworks.

Lerato Chabangu broke the deadlock in the 56th minute after connecting with a cross from Dikgang Mabalane, but the Amakhosi levelled matters through Bernard Parker from the penalty spot four minutes later.
The Bafana Bafana shot stopper, who was named man of the match, was left unhappy with the fact that his team didn't walk away with all three points, but also admitted that the game was tough, according to the Kick Off website.

“It was a tough game, but I’m not happy with the way we started the first half,” Khune said.
“We did exactly what we did against Pirates (in their MTN8 semi-final first leg over the weekend). We started very low and in the second half we put it in sixth gear. It is not good to draw games at home. We have to be winning every home game, but better luck next time.”

The “Spider-kid” was again on top of his game throughout the match, denying both Chabangu and Siyabonga Nomvethe on several occasions.

The draw sent Chiefs to the top of the standings with the Dube Birds occupying second spot on goal difference.

Swallows next game is against newly promoted Mpumalanga Black Aces at the Dobsonville stadium on Friday (20:00), while the Glamour boys will travel to Pretoria for a date with SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe stadium on Saturday (18:00).
