Cape Town - Baroka FC caretaker coach MacDonald Makhubedu believes Kaizer Chiefs were simply too good for his side during Saturday's Nedbank Cup quarter-final loss in Port Elizabeth. 

The Glamour Boys moved into the semi-final of the Nedbank Cup last Saturday after they beat Bakgaga 1-0 courtesy of a 36th minute header from defender Eric Mathoho.

As such, Amakhosi advanced to the semi-finals of the tournament with the draw set to take place on Sunday evening.

Nonetheless, Makhubedu was philosophical about the defeat and said that Chiefs were the better team on the night.

Speaking to SuperSport, he said: "I'm very disappointed. We wanted to kill it off in the first half we missed chances. I think (we lacked) experience here and there. 

"But as I've said before, the Chiefs defence is stubborn. They don't open up. They've got three experienced guys at the back. 

"They are a good team. I think today the experience of Kaizer Chiefs was too much for us. Good luck to them, they needed this, they've been doing well. Because of experience they scored one and closed down. 

"Games like these are won on set-pieces, one set-piece goes in and then you close down the game. We will do better next time."
