Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela commended his troops for their second half performance which saw them come from a goal behind to beat SuperSport United 4-1 on Saturday night.
“We read the match,” said Komphela.
“One of the responsibilities of the technical team is to read what is happening, try interpret and come up with interventions.
“Whatever we put in the dressing room at half time was very close to reality and as reality unfolded someone got punished.
“What happened in the first half was that they didn’t allow us to start at the back – both our fullbacks were locked because (Thuso) Phala and (Dove) Wome were very close to them. In the midfield they had Dean Furman at the back for Parker and Parker could not breathe, and then they had Mkhabela who was cleaning up after that.
“We had to think after that and the only way we could get something after that was through movement, and so we tweaked a bit of our structure to create an opportunity and we will complement they guys in the dressing room for that.
“It worked out wonders.
“I think Gordon (Igesund) is doing a great job. I know he wanted to win the match, but I think the way we applied ourselves in the second half was the difference.”
