Following his side’s 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in an Absa Premiership match on Monday night, University of Pretoria’s Buhle Mkhwanazi admits it is a worrying factor that they are unable to create goal scoring chances.
The side from Pretoria were outplayed in the first half and only managed to have their first attempt on target in the 79th minute of the match.
The Tuks defender, who was awarded the ‘man of the match’, admits it was a poor performance form his side and that his team need to come to the party from the first whistle, and not wait till they go behind.
“It is always tough when you play against a big team and when you go down early on it is really difficult to come back,” said Mkhwanazi.
“We conceded in the most crucial moments of the game, early on, and it is difficult to come back.
“If we managed to play the way we did in the second half from the start we could have got something out of this game.
“It is a worrying factor (that we aren’t creating many chances) because we can’t come to a game without even creating a chance which we weren’t able to do in the first half.
“The second half we woke up, but our guys have to step up from the word go and not wait for things to be bad before they come to the party.”
