Kiazer Chiefs took a point from their clash with Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday evening.
It was a thrilling counter attacking game as City were sitting back and waiting for the counter as Chiefs piled on the pressure for most of the game.
This was a chance for Amakhosi to take to the top of the table should they have won the game. There were no goals scored and a lot of close shaves. Coach Steve Komphela had this to say:
“Polokwane City didn’t make it easy for us in as much as we controlled the game. There was a chance with [Rodney] Ramagalela with a header inside the box and another one where [Rendani] Ndou had a turn inside the box, Itu [Khune] kept us in the game. We also had chances where I think the match could have gone either way.
“We always want to win every match, it’s just a pity we couldn’t win this one. We have to look forward. There’s nothing we can do about this 90 minutes, it’s gone. We have to look back and check what areas we could have done better. There’s one chance of Pule Ekstein and another from ‘Shabba’ [Siphiwe Tshabalala], those chances do count. You get one of those chances then the whole story changes. But we’ll take a point.”
The boys from Naturena will have to take a point and start preparing for their Telkom Knockout match on the weekend.
