Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believes collecting the points was more important than playing fancy football in their 2-0 win over Mariztburg United on Saturday.

Amakhosi clinched their second successive victory and their first home win of the season at the FNB Stadium, thanks to strikes from Lorenzo Gordinho and Williams Twala, giving them their first back-to-back wins since February.

"It might not have been what you wanted to see from the eye, but in terms of business, you have to do business, get three points and go," Komphela told SuperSport.

"The instigator was Kurt Lentjies. All we needed to do was to eliminate that risk as soon as we lost the ball, which I thought we managed quite well.

"But you can't sit back and manage a risk that has not occurred yet, so you still have to take the initiative, which I thought we did in the first-half, and we played quite well and going forward and got the goals required.

"The only thing I felt we didn't do well was as soon as we introduced a third centre-back I found that our wing-backs drifted into the defensive line which eliminated our offensive threat."
