Komphela: More needs to be done

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has called for further improvement following his side's first back-to-back victories in the Premiership since September.

Goals by Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala guided the Soweto giants to a 2-0 victory against Golden Arrows in Durban on Wednesday evening.

And despite Chiefs ending their year off with a victory, Komphela is wary of the competitiveness of the league, citing the points difference between the bottom half of the table and the top half.

"We have always been aware of the tightness of the league," Komphela said in his post-match comments.

"If you can check at the teams at the bottom of the league, up until maybe position ten, nine, it’s still very tough.

"It is unlikely that it will be a difference of four to five points (between those teams at the bottom), very, very tight.

"Even on top, winning two matches back-to-back immediately gives the indication that you are on form even thought there’s still a lot that needs to be done because of the tightness of the league."

He added: "Two matches (won) immediately takes you above and then you still have to keep your feet grounded because the same could happen to somebody else.

"Maybe one found that you can make a remark with regards to inconsistency of the performances in the PSL."

The Naturena based-outfit occupy fourth position on the table and are one point adrift of league-leaders SuperSport United.
