We are tired of draws - Komphela

Cape Town - Steve Komphela claimed that Kaizer Chiefs played well in their goalless Absa Premiership against AmaZulu but was left perplexed as to why they couldn't find a goal.

Amakhosi played to a stalemate with Usuthu at the FNB Stadium. It was their 12th league draw in 24 matches this season, and Komphela was once again left with more questions than answers.

“First 45 minutes, I thought they [AmaZulu] resisted quite well. They mirrored our game. We found it difficult to break them down. But the second half was completely different. We created a number of chances,” Komphela said after the match.

“I thought if you can’t win it in the run of play, at least we could have got one in set-plays. We had more than enough chances.

“In terms of how the game should be covered centrally, we had enough creativity, on the wings we had depth, deep we had enough. We had a game that had all the elements, but nothing came through. We’re just unlucky that we didn’t get a goal today.

“We’re tired of draws. It was a draw that was supposed not to happen. But it happens, what can you do?

“You just have to take it and move on. It does dent your chances and gives hope to the ones above you, but we’ll keep pushing on. It’s very frustrating.”

The draw leaves Chiefs fifth in the league, seven points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, who have a game in hand. With just six matches left in Amakhosi's campaign.

Chiefs next face Free State Stars at Goble Park on Wednesday, April 4.
