Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits to being concerned about his team's form at the FNB Stadium.

Amakhosi are yet to win this season in the three home matches they have played at the stadium, having lost to SuperSport United and drawn with Bidvest Wits and Golden Arrows.

"We need to start winning at home and again, you will wish to have the same performance that we have away," Komphela was quoted saying by KickOff.

"Could it be because when you play away you have all these stadiums packed with people and at FNB Stadium whether it is the size or whatever, but you don't get the same energy.

"But last season we never lost here at FNB Stadium. This season we have lost once and at Chiefs when you draw, it doesn't come out nice. We need to quickly change that to get wins so that we can get over the story," he added.

With recent away wins over Cape Town City and Maritzburg United to their credit, the Soweto giants remain handily placed in fourth spot on the league table.

Their next match is a home game against Baroka FC on Saturday, the match set to take place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Kick off is at 18:00.
