Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela praised his side's performance following a 2-0 victory over Orlando Pirates in the 2016 Carling Black Label Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Amakhosi produced a strong first-half performance, but had nothing to show for their efforts as the two teams went into the half-time break with the scores locked at 0-0.

However, after a sustained period of pressure at the start of the second half, Komphela's side eventually broke the deadlock through Erick Mathoho, before debutant Lewis Macha added his name to the scoresheet in injury-time.

"I thought for a pre-season match against Orlando Pirates, we performed well, we also got a result," a delighted Komphela told SuperSport. "In any match you are looking at the performance and the outcome.

"I thought in the first half we could have gone into the dressing room with at least one goal, but you can't ask for more.

"Macha came in, a nice glancing header, he's a strong boy. I hope whatever we are working towards will come out the way we wish.

"The only thing that gives us pleasure is that most of the people here today - their levels of happiness will be in the red."
