Komphela: The same story again

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believes that they created enough chances to win Jomo Cosmos.

Chiefs entered the match aiming to avoid losing their fourth consecutive game in all competitions – a record which would equal the worst run in their illustrious history.

Amakhosi had also failed to score a goal in those previous four games, with the club's supports growing increasingly disgruntled with every defeat.

However, that was not to be the case as Chiefs fell to a left-footed stunner from Mxolisi Macuphu in the dying minutes of the Absa Premiership encounter.

“It's the same story again. We play good football, it was a good performance,” Komphela said as quoted by KickOff.

“We created chances but we didn’t take them. What else can you do?

“My only worry is that the players could lose their belief and their confidence, and that could affect their performance. What's important is to convert these performances into results.”

Komphela felt Cosmos’ goal was a fluke.

“If you had to ask me, give a ball to the Cosmos team and ask each of their players to try and make that strike, I’m sure they could miss all of them,” he added.

“But it happens when it is not your day. That something out of nowhere could happen.”
