Komphela Critical Of Chiefs Strikers
Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela was critical of his strikers for not keeping it 'simple' against Free State Stars.
The AmaKhosi moved up to third in the Absa Premiership after beating Ea Lla Koto 1-0 thanks to a late winner from Teenage Hadebe.
However, Komphela felt Ryan Moon and Leonardo Castro did not take advantage of the Stars central defensive pairing.
"I would not be doing justice if I were not to compliment Free State Stars for the fight they put, they're a hard nut to crack," Komphela told SuperSport after the game.
"The goalkeeper (Sangare) did a splendid job. I thought Itu (Khune) did well under conditions, you expect goalkeepers to always be there. It was a game of concentration.
"Although, the first half we failed to take advantage of the fact that we were playing Moon and Castro against Mahamutsa and Keita. We could have been more practical. conditions like these, you can't complicate your game, you have to keep it simple, which I thought we failed.
"One of our desires is to see our people enjoy football. A little bit of it showed today but there were great saves by the goalkeeper. I thought the goalkeeper did very well. There was one (save) from Castro. There was about two saves, the one from Parker. Compliment to him, no wonder he was given Man of the Match.
"You can't give up, and knowing that you can have people who can kill games, whenever there's a set play, there's hope.
"I thought Pule (Ekstein) got into those small spaces and created a couple chances, we just need to take them.
