Speaking to the media after the game, the opposition coach, Barker, revealed that despite the loss, the encounter was a good opportunity for his side to measure where they are currently at as a club in its first season in the Absa Premiership.

“When you lose a game 4-0, you are obviously disappointed and it goes without saying but we have to look at ourselves and where we are,” Barker told the media on Wednesday evening.

“There was a difference in quality and class that was quite obvious. 

“It is disappointing but at the same time we also know where we are at as a club and what we are up against in terms of a team that has won 10 out of 12, I think it is the highest return in our country since the Premier Soccer League’s inception. 

“So one has to take your hat off to Kaizer Chiefs for getting the job done today, that’s why on Sunday when they had lost, everybody was telling me they are vulnerable, but I just knew that they are too good a team to not bounce back,” he added.
