NTSEKI LOOKING AT THE POSITIVES
The most important thing is for us to understand the three types of results. We played this game looking to have a win, and when you don’t win the game, yes, you are disappointed, but you also look at the positives,” the Chiefs coach said, as quoted by TimesLive.
“The positives are that we had very good ball possession, we had very good tactical movements going forward in shifting play and changing points of attack.
“And it’s hard work for the players to get into those goalscoring positions. It’s for them to understand our approach in attack.”

KAIZER CHIEFS STAR HAPPY TO RETURN
“It was amazing to come back into the team and contribute with a goal and a good performance,” Edmilson Dove told the Kaizer Chiefs website.
“I have been eager to get back so when my chance came I wanted to play well and contribute to the team, and I am happy I did.
“Obviously, there are areas where I can improve. It wasn’t a 100 percent perfect game, but we learn every day.
“I should also give credit to my teammates because, at certain times in the match I felt a bit tired, but the guys kept pushing me and motivating me to keep going.”
