Pitso: Chiefs Are Winning 1-0 Every Time
Pitso Mosimane Has Praised Steve Komphela's Kaizer Chiefs
Pitso Mosimane has admitted that he’s keeping one eye on Kaizer Chiefs as the Amakhosi look to close the gap, praising their defensive record this season.
The Glamour Boys picked up a big three points over the weekend as they beat Cape Town City 1-0 to go within four points of the current Absa Premiership leaders, and Mosimane knows that they’re capable of getting even closer if they let them.
Speaking to the media on Monday, Masandawana’s head coach praised the work that Steve Komphela has done, pointing out the fact that their recent point at FNB Stadium was important in the title race.
The 53-year-old said, “When we drew with Chiefs, it was to manage things. Let them not get closer, because they’re capable of coming, they’re playing well and scoring – well, they’re not high scoring, they’re winning 1-0 every time – but they’re getting there.
“They score one goal a match and win because they don’t concede a lot. They have the best defensive record with Maritzburg. That shows that our point at FNB Stadium was a good point.
“We could have been very expansive and then got nothing. We managed Chiefs, we managed Cape Town City, and now we need to manage Free State Stars and stay where we are.”
Sundowns can go seven points clear of Chiefs tonight if they manage to beat Ea Lla Koto, and Mosimane will be well aware of the fact that seven points with nine games to go will certainly make sure that his side is in the driving seat.
