Komphela: It’s Crunch Time For Chiefs
Steve Komphela Says It's Crunch Time For Kaizer Chiefs Now
Steve Komphela has bemoaned the amount of draws that his side have been involved in this season, with the 2-2 stalemate with Baroka FC being their third in four games.
The Amakhosi are still in the running for the Absa Premiership title at this stage, however, they were dealt a blow as they dropped points against the team rooted to the bottom of the table.
Baroka scored two goals – including a brilliant solo effort from Mxolisi Kunene – for the first time in a league game since back in October, picking up their first point at home in nearly a month.
Now, with a busy month and a clash with Mamelodi Sundowns on the horizon, Komphela says that the club will remain calm as they look to stay in contention for the league trophy.
Speaking to the club’s official website he said, “Our strength is to play with the ball at our feet with some good passing movements, and every time we did that, we threatened them… It is crunch time in the league and every point is important. We will remain calm. The league is far from decided. We will never give up.
“The supporters were magnificent. They deserved the three points.”
On the topic of their numerous draws this season (nine - the fourth highest amount in the league), Komphela said, “That’s too many. We should have won at least a few of those games. We need to improve on this.”
Chiefs will now have some time off between games, with their next fixture coming on April 1 against Masandawana. Sundowns are just two points behind Chiefs but have four games in hand on them.
