Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has shared his disappointment following a 2-0 loss to Platinum Stars, and admitted it's becoming increasingly difficult to defend Amakhosi's league title.
The defending champions came back empty-handed when they travelled to Rusternburg for their Premiership encounter against Dikwena on Wednesday night.
The match provided an opportunity for Amakhosi to redeem themselves following a derby defeat in the Nedbank Cup Last-32 at the weekend.
Komphela felt the performance was well below par, as a lack of finishing in front of goal eventually led to their down fall.
"The result is bad. It was a terrible performance," Komphela said after the match.
The Glamour Boys are now sitting third in the log standings with 39 points from 22 premiership games, with only 8 games to go before the end to the season.
Komphela has admitted it's going to be very difficult to catch the league leaders, as his side trail Sundowns by 13 points.
"They don't give away matches. They are in a rich vein of form," Komphela said of the Brazilians.
"They could get three chances and they will take two, that's how they are flying. To make matters worse, we are not doing ourselves any favours.
"I am not a quitter. I am not the kind of the person that gives in but I acknowledge the fact that it is becoming more difficult."
