Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believes his side’s inability to score goals is the reason behind the club drawing 12 Premiership matches in 2017/18, eight of which ended 0-0.
Last weekend the Glamour Boys were involved in another stalemate as they played out to a goalless draw with AmaZulu. As such, Amakhosi appears unlikely to challenge for the title as they are now seven points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns with six games left.
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, he said: “We got numerous chances to score, but we lacked the finishing touch to put the ball into the back of the net.
“AmaZulu defended well in the first half, but to defend the way they did demands sustained concentration which costs energy.
“It’s only possible to endure that kind of total focus for so long and that’s why we knew that we would get more goalscoring opportunities in the second half.
“The table never lies, we are well organized defensively, but that doesn’t mean that we play defensively. We have a lot of attacking players in the side.
“Out of the 12 draws eight finished in nil-nil. That means that if we scored once, we would have won. We should have won many of these games as we created many chances. Our lack of goals has hindered our progress.”
