'Chiefs Were Deserved Winners'

Chippa United coach Clinton Larsen believes Kaizer Chiefs were full value for their 4-2 victory over his side in a Nedbank Cup semi-final.

Chippa missed the chance to qualify for their first major cup final after losing to Chiefs in a game where they were leading 2-1 with 20 minutes remaining in the second half.

"Firstly congratulations to Ernst and his team. "I thought they were deserved winners tonight," Larsen told SuperSport after the game.

"Too much turnover from us in the first half.

"We sorted a few things out at half-time, made a few changes and it made an immediate impact. Going 2-1 up and conceding the way we did was amateurish. Very disappointed how we conceded the first three goals.

"It wasn't meant to be. I must credit the boys for the effort they put in, it was a good run. Taking in to consideration the situation of the club at the moment, we definitely punched above our weight."

"We had to take risks. We had to defend intelligently when we got the three bookings at the back.

"Really pleased with the second-half performance, though.

"Before tonight, we had only lost three games from January to April, so that's a remarkable recovery from where we were in December. We've drawn a lot of confidence from the performances we've been putting together so we're confident of doing well in our remaining games."
