Middendorp: We Could've Avoided Conceding Like This

Maritzburg United coach Ernst Middendorp was disappointed with the manner in which they conceded against Kaizer Chiefs.

The Team of Choice suffered their first home defeat to Chiefs since 2017 after Bernard Parker got the winning goal for Stuart Baxter's side on Sunday night.

Middendorp reveals his charges had prepared for Chiefs' set-pieces and could have avoided conceding that goal.

"Set plays, procedure. We were prepared for it. Protecting our goal-line instead of moving forward. We could have really easily avoided conceding a goal like this," Middendorp told SuperSport after the game.

"In total over the entire 90 minutes we did our job as requested. If you play a team of this category, compact we didn't allow the technicality of their side. We had one or two moments in the first half where I think we could have done better.

"Our problem is definitely the entrance into the final third and to make the right decision. Sometimes we are going for glory and not seeing our teammates.

"We are rushing. I think we have to improve in this direction, from the defensive side, from the compact situation, pulling the trigger in the right moment. So far we are on a good way but we still have our issues and challenges in the final third."
