Cape Town - Maritzburg United coach Steve Komphela believes his side should be converting far more chances than they have been in recent weeks.

Three of United’s last five games, including the match with AmaTuks at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday night, have ended in goalless stalemates.

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."
