Nedbank Cup

Komphela: It Could Have Been 4-0…

Not for the first time this season, Steve Komphela has bemoaned Kaizer Chiefs’ inability to kill teams off following their narrow 1-0 win over Baroka in the Nedbank Cup.
 
 
The Amakhosi created numerous chances in the first half, including missing a penalty, although relying on Erick Mathoho getting on the end of Siphiwe Tshabalala’s corner to give them the lead.
 
Bakgaga managed to fight back in the second stanza, creating chances of their own, but the Glamour Boys held firm thanks to the likes of Daniel Cardoso and Teenage Hadebe, booking their spot in the semi-finals for the first time in four years.
 
Speaking to the club’s official website following the victory, Komphela said, “There is still a semi-final to play. For now, the most important thing is the win because we want this trophy. We failed to win (by) a wider margin though. We had some chances to bury the match in the first half. I thought Ryan Moon, Leonardo Castro and Hendrick Ekstein all came close to scoring. We could have easily gone up 4-0 in the first half. 
 
 
“I thought we could have played with more fluidity, but we will take away lots of positives from this victory. I’m happy with the performance in general. There’s also nothing as pleasing as to see our supporters happy. They once again came in numbers to show their love for the team.”
 
Chiefs have been drawn against Free State Stars in the semi-finals of the Nedbank and face the very same Ea Lla Koto on Wednesday in the Absa Premiership, with Komphela looking to try and make sure they don’t end the season without silverware for the third time in a row.
