Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela lamented their 2-2 Absa Premiership draw with Mpumalanga Black Aces on Tuesday, insisting they were still not getting the results that their performances had deserved.
Amakhosi twice threw away the lead at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit and had to settle for a share of the spoils.
The result stretched their winless run to four games in the league and six in all competitions
“We played well, but we need to work on protecting our lead,” Komphela said afterwards.
“Our performance is top class and the goals we concede are accidental if you look at most of our matches. We will stay focused until we turn the corner.
“We had good opportunities to seal it, missing plenty of chances.”
Komphela felt like he was ‘stabbed in the back’ when Chiefs conceded a stoppage time equaliser to Eddie Ngalo.
Before that goals by Siphiwe Tshabalala and Willard Katsande sandwiched a Bhongolethu Jayiya goal.
Komphela added: “Credit must go to Aces they played very well. Their second goal, however, almost felt like a stab in the back, as it came so late in the game.”
He also urged their fans not to turn on them.
“We love our supporters,” Komphela concluded. “However, we need them to support our players. They love Kaizer Chiefs and with them coming fully behind our players, we always gain confidence.”
