Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says he is happy with his team's good run of form, but believes that being smart in team selection and tactical approach is important.

In their last three matches in all competitions, Amakhosi have beaten Mamelodi Sundowns, drawn with Orlando Pirates and thrashed AmaZulu 3-0. The run comes despite the fact that a raft of key first-team players are out injured.

"At Chiefs, you just have to win things," Komphela told told Sowetan Live. "Winning matches is important, winning trophies is the utmost. So the importance thereof is obvious. I am a man of process and any man of process must be selfless. 

"I would love to see Chiefs win trophies every week, every month and every year with or without me. We are getting there without getting carried away. 

"It is okay to have a consistent selection. We do not have the biggest squad. We are sitting on a squad of 20 players and you have to box clever."

Chiefs will next face Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday evening with City high on confidence after being undefeated in their last three games.

Kick off is at 19:30.
