Soweto - Head coaches Muhsin Ertugral and Steve Komphela were left frustrated after their respective teams played to a 0-0 draw in the Soweto Derby at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Both teams had chances to break the deadlock throughout as 90 000 fans watched on, but neither could do just that as the two teams left the 2010 FIFA World Cup final venue with a point apiece in the PSL clash.
"There was plenty of action but, unfortunately, no goals. We had chances but did not take them," said Chiefs coach Steve Komphela.
"I thought our centre-backs Eric Mathoho and Lorenzo Gordinho and defensive midfielder Willard Katsande were outstanding.
"Where we failed was counter-attacking - the ball was moved too slowly to catch out Pirates," he conceded.
Turkey-born Pirates coach Ertugral said: "I am not happy with the result as we had enough scoring chances to have won, especially the one that fell to (Gift) Motupa just after half-time.
"I was happy with our organisation and with a little more luck the three points would have been ours."
It was the 62nd league fixture between the sides and the 25th draw, with Chiefs boasting a 24-13 win-loss record.
