There were more woes for Kaizer Chiefs as they side dropped points this weekend, extending their winless run to five matches in the league and six in all competitions.
The Amakhosi played to a 1-1 draw with SuperSport United at FNB Stadium on Saturday, with the result leaving the club in ninth place on the DStv Premiership log after 17 matches.
Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt was visibly frustrated after his side committed yet another mistake, this time against Matsatsantsa. Following Itumeleng Khune’s defensive error in the previous match against AmaZulu, Anthony Akumu Agay gave away a penalty when he fouled Thamsanqa Gabuza in the area and Bradley Grobler scored from the resultant spot-kick.
After the match, Hunt said Chiefs should have won the match with the chances they had and lamented the fact that they have been committing costly errors.
