Komphela wants better game management

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believes his side need to manage games more effectively if they are to avoid conceding late goals and dropping points.

The Glamour Boys were leading Bidvest Wits 1-0 in Saturday’s Premiership clash but conceded a strike deep into stoppage time to ensure two points were dropped.

The club’s habit of dropping points started last season where they conceded a number of late goals and were subsequently ruled out of the title race.

As such, Komphela wants to see an improvement in controlling matches from start to finish. He told reporters, “In short, we gave it away (against Wits). We could have managed the game much better and that’s it. There’s very little you can say,”Performance wise, I thought we did well and based on the fact that we were one man up (Nazeer Allie sent off for Wits), it could have been better.

“But the logic behind any team that is one man down is that people start to focus more, start to concentrate more, give more and there’s more discipline because you know there is a lot that you need to cover.

“When you have your normal numbers, 11, people just take on their responsibility. So your heightened level of concentration when you are a man down is far better. The one thing we didn’t do is that we should have killed the game by getting a second goal.”
