Tinkler: We Could Have Easily Been 4-0 Up At Halftime

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 23, 2017 10:21 PM

SuperSport United head coach, Eric Tinkler felt his charges should have been 4-0 up at the halftime break against Kaizer Chiefs.

The Tshwane outfit registered their first win of the Absa Premiership season with a 2-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday evening.

However, Tinkler was not pleased with how side played in the second half against the ten men of Chiefs.

"In the first half, we should have really killed the game off with the chances that we had. We could have easily come in at half time 4-0 up," Tinkler told SuperSport after the game.

“But we made the game difficult for ourselves. Our know it’s never easy playing against 10, I don’t know if it’s a psychological thing, but the chances we created, they went down to 10, we got the goal, we got the second, and then we switched off. You can’t do that with the speed that Chiefs have.

"And in the second-half, we weren’t there. We stopped applying the principles that we had practised, and that’s the disappointing part for me.

"Second-half performance was simply not good enough. We gave them [Chiefs] too much time, too much space, and you’re playing against 10, you got a spare man and you’re backing off, and that shouldn’t be happening, so we need to sit and discuss those issues with the players and make them understand you can’t be doing that, especially against a team like Chiefs because they will punish you.

"The way we concede the goal is also silly, you should be clearing your lines. This was an opportunity to keep a clean sheet and we threw it away, which is disappointing.”
