Cape Town - Siphiwe Tshabalala believes that luck has just not been on the side of Kaizer Chiefs, after being eliminated from their second cup competition of the season.

The Soweto giants were condemned to early exits from both the MTN 8 Cup competition and the Telkom Knockout Cup at the hands of Cape Town City and Free State Stars respectively.

Following the loss against Stars, which was decided via penalties, the left-footed midfielder revealed his disappointment at being dismissed from another competition, especially after having fought back twice to remain in the game against Giovanni Solinas's charges.

"It’s disappointing that we lost in that way after such hard work," he told his own official website.

"We tried to play and create chances but at the end of the day we lost through the lottery of penalties.

"Yes, it is the second competition we have exited. It is not easy but we have to accept and move on.

"Sometimes luck plays a big part in football and recently it has not been on our side. Hopefully though going forward we can do better as a team and the rewards will come," he concluded.

Chiefs have been struggling to score goals this season with former players criticising the lack of goal threat from the current Amakhosi side. That has seen defender, Lorenzo Gordinho as the highest goal scorer so far with three goals.

Meanwhile Chiefs have confirmed that they are in talks to extend the contract of Gordinho with the 22-year-old's current deal expiring at the end of the season.
