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
“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.
