Three of United’s last five games, including the match with
AmaTuks at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday night, have ended in goalless
And while the Team of Choice are flying high in the
Premiership table, Komphela feels they should be claiming points more rapidly
than they are.
"It is very frustrating [to miss opportunities] but,
again, you can't lose hope,” said the former Bafana Bafana coach.
“All that we can do is keep on trying, but they not getting
it right and it is frustrating.”
Komphela does, however, feel that his side struggled a bit
with their energy levels in the midst of an intense pre-Christmas period.
"You could see the match they played (on Tuesday), it
took a lot of energy out of them," he said.
"They were not as quick as we know them even on the
counter-attack, we lost too many balls. TK [Sekotlong] and [Mondli] Cele as
well, there was a lot of work that was done by our wingers.
"Our full backs also provided us with width but I think
they acquitted themselves very well."
