We did not have the desired start to the Multichoice Diski season this afternoon with a 4-1 loss to Kaizer Chiefs at King Zwelithini Stadium.
The game plan for us was to try and retain possession and put pressure on the visitors. Kaizer Chiefs game plan countered this from the beginning as they pushed the ball long and high over our defence, creating gaps and chances to score.
We managed to open the scoring however in the 38th minute after a failed header from Dube was lobbed back into the box and Nala headered the ball into the back of the net.
Amakhosi responded just two minutes later as Milazi nudged the ball into the back of the net. Team mate Hoala then scored from the opposite side only three minutes after that to go into the break a goal ahead.
Returning after the break, we tried to change our method of attack, but could just not get into a position to cause any major threat. Nala almost had a second chance to score and Dube pushed into the box behind the Chiefs defence, but was closed down quickly.
The game was over for us after Milazi got his brace and then Bunting converted a penalty in the 65th minute. The inexperienced players were just not able to turn the game around from this.
There is a lot to build on from the game, and the technical staff have a bit of work to do ahead of next weekends game against Bloem Celtic next weekend at Dr. Molemela Stadium
