Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt felt his side should have secured maximum points against SuperSport United in their DStv Premiership clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
The Soweto giants opened the scoring through Reeves Frosler but Bradley Grobler earned his side a point after converting a penalty kick in the second half.
Hunt reserved special praise for Bernard Parker but felt his side are suffering for all their mistakes.
‘Phums I don’t know, decent performance, I thought we played well, comfortably if you know football you should understand we should have won the game,’ Hunt told SuperSport TV after the match.
‘The chances we had and I said to the players before the game that the most important thing playing against SuperSport [United] don’t give free-kicks away.
‘And then one free-kick, we pull the jersey, we’re getting hurt for one mistake every game and that’s what has been happening to us a lot this season.
‘A penalty here, a mistake here and that’s what cost us and obviously we don’t take advantage of the chances. But good credible performance, some players stood up.
‘I thought Bernard Parker who has not played for some time playing centre midfield, you gotta do what you have to do but he was fantastic.
‘You know ‘Mshini’ [Nkosingiphile Ngcobo]…but all in all good performance we battled away but you have to be scoring the chances that we get.’
The former Bidvest Wits mentor admits that he had mixed feeling about his teams defensive performance against SuperSport but was pleased with their overall showing.
‘You can say yes or no, they get a penalty from a free-kick, if the defensive shape is right and the ball comes in the box you should deal with those things, we have not been dealing with those things.
‘To be fair SuperSport’s strength is that, Bradley [Grobler] and Gabuza and these people they are decent, there’s always a secondary ball after the first ball, so you gotta be careful, we didn’t deal with that with the penalty and we suffered,’ he added.
