Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune admitted that it
took some strong words from coach Steve Komphela to turn around Sunday's
Nedbank Cup game against Golden Arrows.
Amakhosi went into the half -time break of their last-32
encounter at the FNB Stadium locked at 0-0 with the Durban side.
But they came out firing in the second half as goals from
Ryan Moon, Bernard Parker, and Joseph Molangoane secured a 3-0 win over Arrows
and kept the Soweto giants' dreams of a league and cup double alive.
Man-of-the-Match Khune admitted that Chiefs were not up to
scratch in the first half and explained how the turnabout came:
"In the first half, I don't think we played according
to our game-plan. We were very poor," the Bafana Bafana stopper said.
"The coach gave us a tongue-lashing at the break and we
came out better in the second half. So I think we always need to get that
before playing our best game."
The Glamour Boys now turn their focus to the league - they
host Cape Town City this coming Saturday before taking on Bloemfontein Celtic
and then Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates on March 3.
Chiefs are fourth on the standings, seven points behind
leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
