Arthur Zwane Blames Weak Attack for 1-0 Loss

Kaizer Chiefs coach, Arthur Zwane, says that his team’s attack strategy is to blame for their 1-0 loss at the hands of Sekhukhune United at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Sunday, 23 April.

Initially spurred on by a goal made by Sekhukhune’s Sammy Seabi just four minutes in, Chiefs gained possession of the ball for 66% of the game. However, failing to capitalise on open shots and unable to break through their opponents’ defence in the last third culminated in their defeat.

In a post-match interview, Zwane lamented their loss: “I think we started off well. It looked like we were going to get a goal before they scored … We conceded and from there, we were chasing the game.”

He went on: “I still believed we were going to equalise, but I don’t think we were sharp enough in the final third. Our box entries today were not better than in the previous games. It is one of those games where we chased [but] they defended very well. They did not give us that space behind and in the middle. So congrats to them.”

Amakhosi are set to take on Chippa United this Thursday, 27 April, so here’s hoping Zwane’s men can regain their momentum before the end of the Premier Soccer League season.
