Chirambadare finding his feet at Chiefs

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs winger Edmore Chirambadare says he was happy with his showing against Baroka FC and hopes to build on that performance.

The Zimbabwean made his 10th league start for Amakhosi in the 2-2 draw in Polokwane. His pace and purpose provided the Baroka defence with plenty of problems, and the 25-year-old can probably count himself unlucky at not having got on the score-sheet himself.

He was understandably pleased by his own promising run-out, although admitted disappointment at Chiefs' failure to claim maximum points.

"I was happy with my performance," Chirambadare told his club's website. "I want to continue like that. I will continue pushing to improve and to contribute to the team's overall performance.

"But Baroka were very good on the day. Their defence was well organised and they played to their strength of man marking. They didn’t leave us any space for our forwards to manoeuvre.

"A draw was not what we were looking for. We were fighting for a win."

The Soweto giants are only three points off the top of the table, a league title challenge looking on the cards.

But with nine matches to play still, Chirambadare says it's important not to start thinking too far ahead.

"As much as we are disappointed with the draw, we will keep pushing until the last match of the season," he said.

"We haven't started counting points and the number of the games remaining. We are still taking it game by game at this stage."

Amakhosi's next outing is a league match against Mamelodi Sundowns on 1 April at the FNB Stadium.
