Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs defender Morgan Gould believes that the Amakhosi failed to break the deadlock because they were too cautious against Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Glamour Boys shared the spoils with Phunya Sele Sele in an Absa Premiership encounter played at the FNB Stadium.

“It was a good match for both teams on the day,” said Gould.

“We knew they are very fast and they like counter pressing football a lot, so they made us run a lot throughout the entire game.

“We also did well but it was one of those cautious games’ which we tightened our defence.

“And we were very tight at the back and due to that we failed to score and in football you will not win games if you don’t score goals.”

Meanwhile, Celtic capatain Bevan Fransman was ecstatic with an away point but admits that they should have won the game following Musa Nyatama's a glorious opportunity before the interval.

“Keeping a clean sheet was the biggest positives from the game,” insisted Fransman

“We are grateful for a point we got, it was worth it for us.

“We almost let it sleep in the end but lucky for us it (a goal) was called for an off-side.

“We also had our fantastic chance before half time, if Musa Nyatama took that chance we could have gone to the break leading.

“But overall, we are happy with a point away from home and I’ll take the point today, tomorrow and in future.”
