Leopards Coach: Khune Kept Chiefs In The Game

Black Leopards head coach Joel Masutha felt the heroics of Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune was one of the big differences between the two sides on the night.

Leopards slipped to their fifth defeat of the Absa Premiership season after losing 1-0 to Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Despite Leopards' worrying form in the league, Masutha insists his side will get it right in front of goal.
 
“It was a game that was going to be determined by small margins. Chiefs got their goal from a corner, we also got many which we didn’t convert,” Masutha told SuperSport after the match. 
 
“The only thing that we need was to convert chances. Also on a couple of occasions (Itumeleng) Khune kept Chiefs in the game. He made some good saves, especially the last one from a corner. The ball just doesn’t want to go in. We’ll still work on it. I believe we’ll get it right.
 
“We’ve been playing like this throughout. It’s only this game and the last two against SuperSport (United) and Golden Arrows that we didn’t play well. I understand that we lost because we didn’t perform but the other games we’re losing doing the same things. Sometimes it’s tiring to come out and say “we played well but we didn’t score”. The hunger is there but we need to work more on attack and finish the chances in the box."
