Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has accepted the blame for the 1-0 loss to ASEC Mimosas with a section of the fans expressing their dissatisfaction on Saturday.

After the result, which was Chiefs' third loss in a row in all competitions, some supporters vented their frustrations by booing the coach.

Komphela feels his team was unfortunate in front of goal in the CAF Champions League first round first-leg, but accepts the fans have a right to be upset and blame him.

"In relation to the reaction of the supporters I think I will be a little bit unfair not to accept that. You have to take and accept it, they want results and you have to agree to that," Komphela told KickOff.

"But what I enjoyed from that which I think I have to sustain is it should come to me not go to the level where players have to panic. As long as it comes to me it will be better.

"But the minute it goes to the players then it becomes a bit of a challenge because then you have to manage their confidence. We have to be familiar with it and I accept it.

"With regards to matches where you play you create chances and you don't take. You do create in almost all the matches we've played.

"In terms of performance and how we go on in business of football there is pluses, there is positives. The only negative is that we don't take our chances."
