Kaizer Chiefs coach Ersnt Middendorp believes it was an excellent game despite their stalemate against SuperSport United at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
The Glamour Boys failed to maintain their perfect start to the league campaign after playing out to a 1-1 draw with SuperSport when Samir Nurkovic’s opener was cancelled by Bradley Grobler’s second half equaliser.
Amakhosi are now placed first in the league standings with seven points while United moves up to seventh place with four points.
‘I think it was an excellent game. Competitive from both sides. There were moments where I thought we should have got the second goal. Not only [Samir] Nurkovic, but [Dumisani] Zuma and [Khama] Billiat also had good chances,’ Middendorp told SuperSport TV after the game.
‘But that’s soccer. In the end, we have to realise there are a lot of players coming back from injury who have been out for 4-6 months. Like Eric Mathoho, Lebogang Manyama.
‘At the moment I’m very happy. We have been criticised a lot in the past. I think today we have seen what a brilliant goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is.
‘I am not so childish to not watch the penalty. I was watching it. Ironically, I saw a lot of penalty saves from Daniel this week from players in training.’
