Cape Town - Willard Katsande has revealed Kaizer Chiefs are not reading too much into their pre-season loss against Baroka FC and are motivated to do well this season.

The Zimbabwe international captain led the Soweto giants in the final of the F.A.M.E. Charity Cup this weekend, where Chiefs were defeated 3-0 on penalties after the scores were deadlocked through 90 minutes.

"We know results matter every time we play, but during pre-season we are testing a number of elements in the game," he told the club's website.

Katsande, William Twala and George Maluleka saw their spot kicks saved to hand Premiership newcomers Baroka the F.A.M.E. Charity Cup trophy.

"The penalty kicks were a big disappointment, for the team and also for me personally, as the captain on the day. I take responsibility and will work on it. We are perfecting some of the tactics," he added.

"We are also cautious not to give away much detail to the opponents at this stage of the pre-season."
