Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala claims the club's poor start to the season is an indication of how strong the PSL is and not how weak Chiefs are.

The defending champions are fifth in the league after only managing to win two of their opening six games, but remain unbeaten having drawn the other four.

Tshabalala revealed they were generally happy with their start to the season, but admitted they would have liked to have won more.

"We are happy with our start to the season," he told Goal.com.

"The good thing is that we haven't lost a game yet, although we would have liked to win more than we have drawn but you know the league is improving and every team is tough now.

"Every team wants to better one another, which is helping to improve the game. We can't undermine any team that we play against as that would cost us points, but this is good for the game in this country as it's improving," Tshabalala concluded.

Chiefs' next assignment is a tough away trip to high-flying Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday before they host Mpumalanga Black Aces in the league the following weekend.
