Chippa second but more to be done

Chippa United should have wrapped up their result against Kaizer Chiefs by halftime on Wednesday but failure to do so almost cost them their victory, said coach Teboho Moloi after the 1-0 triumph in the Absa Premiership clash at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

“It was a very difficult game and credit should go to Kaizer Chiefs in the second half. In the first half we had our chances and we were supposed to have wrapped up the game. In the second half we were more defensive, trying to consolidate our lead.

“Chiefs came out at us in the second half and were a very different team. You could see our boys were caught in sixes and sevens,” added Moloi.

“You know I’m always preaching: ‘lets first fix what we have in the house before we can go out’ and, for the first time, in the second half I felt that our boys didn’t have a balance in attack and defence and that is something I took out of this game – that we need to strike a balance because the more I emphasise to them about going forward, the more they seemed to lose concentration. We’ll get there but it’s still a process”

The win elevated Chippa into a four-way tie at the top of the table along with Mamelodi Sundowns, Baroka FC and Orlando Pirates. Chippa are second on goal difference.
