Cape Town - Acornbush United coach MacDonald Makhubedu criticised the performance of Kaizer Chiefs after his side suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat in a Nedbank Cup last-16 clash on Sunday.

A late brace from substitute Gustavo Paez sent the Glamour Boys through to the next round of the cup competition after Acornbush were forced to play the majority of the game with 10 men after Sandy Nyathi was sent off in the 29th minute.

Speaking in a post-match interview Makhubedu said that he was left disappointed by the performance of their much-fancied opponents while saying that his players learnt nothing from the game.

"Everyone came to watch the biggest team in the country then they watch this," Makhubedu said. "Come on man, my boys didn't learn anything today.

"I wanted them to learn, it was not fruitful for me as a coach and I wanted to use this game as preparation for the play-offs, but their idols didn't come to the party.

"If this is the biggest team in the country, the national team will never beat Lesotho because if this is the biggest players we are in trouble," he concluded.


Meanwhile Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits his side were not at their best and had several areas of concern.

"We made our lives difficult. We all know it is a nightmare for any full-back to defend a diagonal ball, but the pace of Sidumo going and anticipating the crosses, he left the full-back for dead," said the Chiefs mentor.
