Chiefs suffered a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Chippa at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“That’s exactly what we said in the dressing room [that Chiefs were lacklustre] our body language… one has to consider that this is our third match in seven days but it’s no excuse everybody goes through that,” Komphela told SuperSport TV after the game.

“I thought we lacked energy. You could see from our actions and reactions we were always second best. In a match like this where people are opportunistic and they have luck on their side, you hardly win matches of this calibre.

“If you look at our first goal it’s an error at the back. It looked like someone had put a pause on us and said ‘pause, don’t move’ and then went in and scored. The second and third goal as well. Obviously, you start to see that there’s no energy.

“Take it on the chin and accept that they won the match 3-0 they deserve it. Could it had been better? For sure.”
