Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Patrick Mabedi believes there are positives to be taken from Tuesday's 3-1 Absa Premiership defeat to Golden Arrows.

The Glamour Boys lost to Arrows courtesy of a brace from Lerato Lamola as well as Velemseni Ndwandwe's strike. Meanwhile, Bernard Parker got Chiefs' goal after Leo Castro had been sent off earlier for a bad tackle.

While Mabedi was understandably not satisfied with the result, he takes the view that plenty can be learnt from the experience at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban. 

Speaking to SuperSport after the game, he said: "I have to give credit to the players. They did well, they fought. They showed character, we have to say we tried our best.

"If you look at the goals we conceded, it looks like to me that we just gave it cheaply, some individual errors, it is one of those things. You keep on going.

"We were good, we tried, we played and had spirit that they showed today.

"If we continue and work on the mistakes that we made today then I think we will go somewhere." 

Amakhosi are next in action in the league on Saturday against high-flying Maritzburg United, before completing the season with an away trip to Ajax Cape Town. 

Kick-off is at 15:00.
