Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela felt his side could have sneaked a win but remained content with the Soweto Derby draw on Saturday.

Chiefs and Orlando Pirates played to yet another 0-0 draw at the FNB Stadium despite a fiery atmosphere created by their passionate fans.

While the injury depleted Amakhosi may have done well to secure four points over Mamelodi Sundowns and the Buccaneers this week - Komphela admits they could've supplied their supporters with more.

"I thought the first half belonged to them. They overloaded the midfield, they played more for time than for a goal, which we have to accept because sometimes your strategy is to get your opponent tired by playing," he told SuperSport after the game.

"We could have allowed our centre-backs to step up and press in the midfield but we did that in the second half that's why our game got better. Even in the first half we had chances, there's one of (Siyabonga ) Ngezana where he hit the upright.

"With the match of this nature, with a professional performance you win it on set-plays but unfortunately we didn't capitalise. I thought we could have won the match with at least one set-play.

"Overall one point we'll take it. For the people that wanted goals unfortunately we could not give them more."
