Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits he is concerned with his side’s inability to find the back of the net.
The 0-0 draw is the third in a row for the Amakhosi after previously playing to the same scoreline against Orlando Pirates in the league and Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout.
“That (not scoring) should be the concern, but before you can score you need to generate and create,” says Komphela.
“There are many scenarios where you have to generate goals or create.”
Referring to his side’s display against Baroka in the league, Komphela feels his side was a little hesitant in attack and gave the opposition too much space.
“I thought sometimes we were a bit reluctant to go forward a bit quicker against Baroka because when they are sitting in defence the only time you can get an opportunity is when they have the ball – when they lose the ball then have the appetite to hit as quickly as possible,” explained the Chiefs head coach.
“We did enter the final third, but sometimes it is the question of taking the right decision and the ball dropping to the right player, and that is the difference between a 1-0 and a 0-0.
“With regards to clean sheets, it is okay, it is something positive that we can take home but it is important also to acknowledge the manner in which you set-up in your defence is informed by how you attack – the way we attack means we have to immediately get on the ball as soon as we lose it which I thought at some stage we opened up a bit.
“We lost the ball and gave them a breather – we need to be on their throats, we have to suffocate them because the minute you back off the teams we play against they get very excited when they get space.
“I’m delighted with the clean sheet against Baroka, but not happy with the result – we need to start scoring.”
