Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela believes his team created enough chances to see off the challenge of Bloemfontein Celtic.

Amakhosi played to a 1-1 draw with Clinton Larsen's men in the first leg of their MTN8 semi-final clash, keeping the tie finely poised ahead of the return leg on August 29.

Helder Pelembe netted a sensational debut goal to fire Celtic in front, before Bernard Parker missed from the penalty post for Chiefs.

However, Parker made amends with a wonder strike of his own to put his side back on level pegging.

When asked for his assessment of the match, Komphela was quoted as saying by KickOff: "In terms of how we performed, except the missed penalty, we created enough attempts. But as the old saying goes, you win matches by scoring goals."

He added: "The tactical plan from them was clear with three centre-backs. Having wing-backs, we had the opportunity to use the sides of the field.

"Even in the first half, when they made that sub I thought there would be a change but it stayed the same."
