Chippa Coach: 'It Is Not Acceptable'
Chippa United Coach Concerned About Inconsistency
Chippa United head coach, Vladislav Heric, feels that the team should aim for all three points when they play at home.
In their match against Ajax Cape Town at the weekend, the Chilli Boys succumbed to a 90th Yannick Zakri equaliser, giving away what looked like a victory for the home side at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.
“It feels like we lost the game. It was important for us to win this game and get to 36 points. We were a little bit lethargic in the first half even though we created a few chances. We were slow (in) our build up and gave them time on the ball,” Heric has been quoted as saying on Chippa’s official website.
“We were good on counters. I believe we should have scored two or three goals. Mark Mayambela was brilliant for us on the flanks,” said the Serbian mentor.
“We stopped playing which resulted in a tactical mistake. I feel that my players did well and I remain proud of their efforts. The performance was again solid but at home, a point is not enough, it is not acceptable. I will ask my players to show more aggression and energy at our home games. Our home record must improve, that is for sure.
“I do think that despite the draw the team has improved tremendously and I applaud my players for their effort. We will go back to the training ground and correct it and try to be ready for the next game,” said the coach.
Chippa are scheduled to travel to Mangaung for a clash with Bloemfontein Celtic in their next match, which will be at the Dr Molemela Stadium next Tuesday.
Chippa have decided to take their last home match of the season to Mdantsane’s Sisa Dukashe Stadium, against SuperSport United on April 28, before playing their last match of the 2017/18 campaign against Polokwane City on May 12.
