Cape Town - Analysing
the 2-1 win over Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela was
content with the defensive effort, but feels his side could be more
clinical in attack.
Goals from Siyabonga Ngezana and Bernard Parker saw the Glamour Boys
secure a morale-boosting 2-1 win over the African champions at Loftus on
Sundowns ended the match with 10 men after Tiyani Mabunda was
red-carded in the 73rd minute, but did pull a goal back eight minutes
from time through a Themba Zwane penalty.
Chiefs however showed character to hold on for the win which moved them to within three points of the summit.
Komphela was pleased overall, although he suggested his side could have won by a larger margin.
"First half, I thought we had about six chances. Just a bit of more
belief. A belief that you are inside the box and you can take it and
from there. Defensively, I thought we did quite well," he said.
"Defence is so frustrating that you need to be disciplined under
punishment. When you maintain the pressure and the discipline, that
informs how you come out.
"Even in the dying minutes, I thought if we had picked the right
pass, we could have got [another goal]. But it's football, there will
always be things that you think 'if I could, if I would' but we should
be happy with the result and we moving on."
Next up for Amakhosi is the Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates this coming Saturday.
Kick off is at 15:30.
