Man of the Match Ramahlwe Mphahlele has explained why Kaizer Chiefs can't play 'nice football' at the moment.
The Soweto giants registered back-to-back wins in the DStv Premiership for the first time this season after edging Cape Town City 2-1 on Saturday evening.
The Chiefs full-back admitted that the club are not in position to play nice football at the moment, but praised his teammates for grinding out another win.
"It was a difficult game, we played a very good side, we knew that they are very good on the ball, we had to keep our distances right," Mphahlele told SuperSport TV .
"We had to defend well and try to catch them on a counter and it worked first 45 minutes but second-half you saw they came, we were defending in our box.
"We knew there was nothing we could do, we had our backs up against the wall, we just just had to defend well. We did and got the three points, which we needed," he said.
"At this point, to play nice is okay but we're not in a position to play nice football, let's get up the ladder and then we can start playing good football.
"The mentality has been good, the past two games the guys have been grinding, it is showing. Sometimes you have to grind the result.
"We went to Durban, we grinded the result, we came to Cape Town, the most difficult place to play, we grinded the result and we're very happy, we just have to keep going."
