Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says it was important for his side to keep the momentum going following their 4-1 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Macufe Cup.

Amakhosi proved far superior to their Premiership counterparts on Sunday at the Free State Stadium, with Edmore Chirambadare, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Bernard Parker and Keagan Buchanan all getting their names on the scoresheet.

"We needed to win to keep the momentum going and also giving a lot of them an opportunity to have a run," he said in post-match comments.

"There was a stage where they came back in the second half, they had tweaked their structure, they had played a three-man defence, so we needed to adapt to that without compromising the way we play.

"We could have scored more, Shabba had one and George (Lebese) as well, but it was beautiful football, exciting, there was lots of action in the final third, but we can only build from this," he concluded.

The Soweto giants who are currently on a four-game unbeaten spell in the league face Ajax Cape Town in their next Premiership encounter on Saturday at the FNB Stadium.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
