Tembo: We Were A Little Sloppy At The Back

SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo was disappointed with the manner in which they conceded against Kaizer Chiefs.

Matsatsantsa saw their unbeaten record fall at the hands of their former coach Stuart Baxter on Sunday evening.

The SuperSport tactician, who was previously Baxter's right-hand man, felt the defending on the night was sloppy.

"I'm disappointed with the two goals we conceded. We didn't track our runners. We were a little bit sloppy in our defending, especially the two centre-backs. They were a lot of cross runs in front of them. We didn't manage our distances, "Tembo told SuperSport TV.

"I think we also had chances, especially in the first half. We had two chances. They could have slotted the ball in there. But look we just have to dust ourselves off and focus on the next game.

"We didn't get behind them enough. We did it, but not enough. If you play a game like this, you've got to do that consistently.

"There were a lot of breaks in between in terms of our intensity. We were a bit sloppy and slow on transition when we could hurt them. Especially when [Njabulo] Blom and [Sifiso] Hlanti went high up. But we were not quick enough to capitalise on that."
