Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits his side were lacking consistency after being held to a goalless draw against 10-man Chippa United on Sunday afternoon.

Amakhosi endured a mixed off-season, losing in the King's Cup and Carling Black Label Cup, although they managed to bounce back in the MTN8 on Wednesday with a 5-3 extra-time win over Maritzburg United.

However, the Glamour Boys again looked off the boil against the Chilli Boys, despite playing the second-half of this weekend's Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium clash with the numerical advantage, and Komphela admits they need to find a better balance if they are to push on in the remainder of the campaign.

He said: "We did not meet our expectations. We know what we want to achieve and we want to be consistent in terms of how we play.

"If Chiefs have to play, then they must be consistent. There were stages where we looked like we are the Chiefs that we know, but at times we were not."

He continued: "I still maintain that with one man down we should have beat them.

"How we entered the final third, we played the balls in the air but we maybe should have played the ball on the floor.

"These are all things that we will look at."
