Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp
says his players focused on improving the attacking side of their game
after the defeat to Maritzburg United.
Amakhosi were eliminated from the Telkom Knockout by the Team of
Choice on November 24, but bounced back in style with a 4-0 drubbing of
Stellenbosch in the Absa Premiership.
Middendorp has revealed that his team worked hard on their movement
and passing in the final third following the Maritzburg clash and it
seemed to pay off nicely in the end.
"We regrouped immediately after the Maritzburg game on Sunday," Middendorp stated on the club's official website.
"We went on to deal with forward movements and our passing game. Moving and passing form part of a successful game.
"Tactically, we've recently seen opponents close us down quickly.
We’ve had to work on the players that would take on opponents in
He added: "Our set-piece work is one of our strong points. We go into
set-pieces with intensity. We have all the ingredients to be successful
in set-pieces. It's a crucial element in modern football.
"Football is quite easy. Don't concede and contribute to scoring. We play with passion and energy, and that's what we need."
The league leaders will host Bloemfontein Celtic in the Absa Premiership on Saturday, December 7.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
