Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela was happy with what he saw from his team against Chippa United, despite the fact they lost the pre-season friendly.

Komphela chose to give many of his new signings a run out and the lack of fluidity was clearly evident among the new team-mates, but he admits that they are still experimenting ahead of the new campaign.

"It's just the beginning and we're still trying to see other things – there's a couple of players you want to have a look at and we're satisfied with the exercise, it gave us a lot of information," Komphela told the SABC.

"We're looking a different things. In the first half I thought we had good discipline in defense. It is part of a training exercise where you're saying, 'sit in the block, let's keep positions, don't allow any forward passes, and how quick do you come out.'

"From that point of view, defensively, I think it looked okay. Even though I thought, when it came to back passes we needed to go through, but we didn't.

"Second half it got better, but there were a couple of players we were looking at and we're satisfied with the exercise. We can go back [home] with our notes and move on."
