Thapelo Tshilo struck in the 75th minute to hand Rise and Shine a 1-0 over the AmaKosi on Saturday evening.

However, Komphela felt his charges should have wrapped up the game in the first half with the chances they created.

“I thought first half we could have wrapped it and if you don’t wrap it in the first-half, or the second-half as well.” Komphela said after the game.

"I thought we did play, but you need to take the chances you create. Maybe one thing we could have done better is play more quicker forward, and try penetrate more.

“But as well, penetration would be affected by their defensive block. The central part of it was blocked, so maybe we needed to go wider, go come, go wide, get a cross in. Those are things in football that define the moment.

“I think we defended badly on the corner. We don’t normally concede on corner kicks; last season we conceded a lot, this season only once. We should have defended better.

“I thought in defence you need to put your body on the line. There are stages where the ball, even if it’s 50-50 or 60-40, we just need to put a stronger foot in so that you can defend.

“Congratulations to them (Polokwane City). They fought for it, they had the energy, and unfortunately, with us, we didn’t take the chances we had or advantage of the situations we created ourselves.”
