The loss leaves Stars firmly rooted to the bottom of the Absa Premiership table with 21 points, seven adrift of second-from-bottom Ajax Cape Town.

“It is the same old story – one mistake and we get punished,” De Sa told SuperSport after the game.

“We gave the ball away easily in our half and they punished us from that.

“We said it was going to be a game of mistakes, the conditions made it that way and they have the quality to punish you when you make a mistake.

“We have to be better than we were today.

“We spoke about not making errors before the game and at half time, and we made tow silly ones and we were punished. Chiefs have the quality and they will always do that.

“It is the same old story, that one goal and then we try to throw people forward and have a go at it, but obviously we couldn’t penetrate them.”

Looking ahead to his side’s final three league games of the season, De Sa is aware of the importance of collecting points and is adamant his team will keep fighting until the very end.

“Every game is crucial now, every game is a cup final for us,” added the Stars coach.

“As long as we have got a chance we will keep fighting.

“We have two games left at home and one away, but there is no real home and away for us – they will all be tough games.

“We are looking forward to it and we are going to give it a full go.”
