Chiefs Coach Bemoans Small Pitch

Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas felt his side were unable to play their usual game due to the small field at the Makhulong Stadium.

Chiefs failed to make it four wins in a row after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Highlands Park on Tuesday evening.

Solinas says the small pitch and the grass did not allow Chiefs to play their usual game.

“Good game, both teams played well. We created chances to score but it’s a pity [we didn’t score]. I appreciate the effort from my players. In the last minute they tried to win the game so I’m happy,” the Italian told SuperSport after the match.

“Difficult game to play because of the small field, the grass was not good to play combinations. It was not easy today.

“I don’t like playing a lot of long balls, long throw-ins. It’s a farting game. In the second half we created chances to win the game it’s a pity we didn’t convert these chances. But it’s okay we now focus on the next game.”

The former Free State Stars tactician elaborated on why he brought in Hendrick Ekstein and Bernard Parker early in the second stanza.

“We changed to refresh the team. We put on a player like Pule [Hendrick Ekstein] very good on the ball, good technique. [He] can play quick combinations," he added.

“We put on [Bernard] Parker to put more pressure on the Highlands Park defence.”
