Komphela wants persistence

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admitted their goalless draw against Chippa United was a case of "two points dropped".

Amakhosi were handed a huge advantage before half-time at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium at the weekend when the Chilli Boys were reduced to 10 men after Joseph Molangoane picked up a second yellow card for dissent.

However, the Glamour Boys were unable to make the most of the situation, with Siphiwe Tshabalala striking the bar the closest Chiefs came to a winner.

And, speaking ahead of this coming weekend's MTN8 semi-final first-leg away to Bloemfontein Celtic, Komphela told his club's website: "There are a lot of areas I thought we could have done better.

"We could have done better in the final third with decisive entries. We needed to be more persistent to break them down."

He added: "It is two points dropped. This team has a history of success. We will go back to the drawing board and reflect to make sure we don't drop points."
