Benni Laments Missed Opportunity Against Giants Chiefs

Benni McCarthy was left disappointed after his team AmaZulu lost to Kaizer Chiefs in their DStv Premiership match played at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium in Durban on Wednesday afternoon.

An early strike from Samir Nurkovic was the only goal of the match as Chiefs won for the second time this season, while McCarthy lost for the first time since taking over the coaching reins in December at the Durban-based outfit.

Usuthu remain in ninth place on the log, while Chiefs have moved up from 14th to 10th on the standings, with both teams on 10 points.

"I am very disappointed because I think that was a tremendous opportunity for us to have walked away with three points today because Kaizer Chiefs aren't in a good way but they are giants. So, when you play giants whether they're in top form or whether they are not so in top form you play the way we did and you create the chances that we did," said McCarthy, speaking to the media.

"We have to be clinical, we have to put the ball in the net because teams like this need one chance to punish you and that's exactly what happened and the chance was from a mistake from us. But I'm very happy with the performance from the players. I'm very happy with the way we pushed them all the way and searching for that equaliser. We could have had it but not the right scoring boots on today but we are going to continue to work because there's so many positives. The confidence, the way we move the ball, the way with the chances that we create, how we play to create the chances is very positive but now we need to just work on putting them away," the coach added.
