Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admitted that his side gave away two valuable points in their 2-2 draw against Baroka FC on Saturday night.

The Soweto giants looked set to register their tenth victory of the campaign after goals by Eric Mathoho and Bernard Parker gave them a slender 2-1 lead.

However, Baroka substitute Mxolisi Kunene gave his team their fair share of the spoils with an fine individual effort in the 75th minute.

"I thought the match had lots of energy," he said in post-match comments.

"I thought there were instances where we allowed it to be open, we needed to control it more.

"With regards to performance one can not falter them, there was energy, there was excitement. Even towards end of first half we saw how they finished the first half," he added.

Komphela said that Bakgaga's two goals came as a a result of a lapse in concentration by his side.

"And we continued in the second half. I think the goals we gave away were lapses of concentration, we could have done better.

"The first one was we lost possession in the centre of the field and we paid the price, the second one we allowed the runner to go on. 

"But even before they scored that goal you could see more of a man that was going and coming going and coming like tennis.

"If I were to make a response based on the fact that you are at Chiefs I thought we gave it away, we could have won this match."
