Komphela: Still same problems

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admitted he was hugely frustrated to see his side continue to struggle in the final third following Saturday's draw against Ajax Cape Town.

The two PSL rivals had to settle for a share of the spoils after this weekend's FNB Stadium encounter finished goalless, leaving AmaKhosi fourth in the standings and three points behind third.

And, speaking after the game, a clearly frustrated Komphela told SuperSport: "If you were to go back and pull any clip where you have covered our match, any post-match, you'll find that this coach says the same thing, Probably this coach has run out of vocabulary.

"We still had those chances, there were one-on-ones that we had, quite a number of chances, but again, you go back and pull any clip of any post-match interview by Chiefs coach you'll find the same statement, it's just boring.

"Ajax defended with lots of energy, they were willing to put their bodies on the line, but we did get chances, we managed to breach them several times, we went through central, we managed to go wide, any third entries you make in any team environment we did today.

"Did we get in touch with the keeper? Yes, we did. Did we get an opportunity to put the ball at the back of the net? Yes. Did we? No."
