Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believed it was only a matter of time before his team got back to winning ways.

Amakhosi put an end to their eight-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over University of Pretoria on Wednesday.

The victory brought some relief for the under-pressure Komphela, who has had a tough first season in charge of Amakhosi.

"With regards to the win after so long, it's football. One thing we did, we kept our eyes on the goals that we needed to go through. There are processing goals towards achieving whatever," Komphela told KickOff.

"As much we were not winning matches, and we hated drawing, we were performing quite well. Again, it becomes an insult when you say you are performing but not getting the three points but we had to remain objective and look at things with the head rather than the heart.

"As it went on today one was thinking are we going for another draw. Are we going to curse a draw? Sports people will always tell you, if you don't get a draw you get a win or lose.

"Now when you curse a draw, would you want to go for a loss? You don't want to. We appreciate the fact that we won."
