KAIZER Chiefs enforcer Willard Katsande says his side were guilty of being too wasteful in front of goal following their 0-0 stalemate in the Soweto derby in the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
The Zimbabwean says he understand the fan’s frustrations that the game against Orlando Pirates did not live up to expectations but adds that both teams were well matched on the day.
“The fans are the bosses and we need to please them,” Katsande told KickOff.com. “In my opinion it was a good game, you know. We should’ve buried one or two chances but both teams were well organised. It’s also not for a lack of trying.
“It’s very difficult to play for a club like Chiefs as you carry huge responsibility on your shoulders. You have to be at your best all the time.”
The Chiefs midfielder urged fans to be patient with the side as they look to improve on certain aspects of their game.
“Our confidence is definitely back and we’ve been picking up points. The fans must also remember that the other teams are also getting stronger and better and we have to up our game constantly,” he said.
“We are creating more chances in our games but converting them is our challenge. That’s definitely one aspect of our game that we need to polish up.
“Like I said we are playing well but there’s always room for improvement. The goals will come we just have to remain focussed and patient. And when we do get ourselves in that attacking positions we have to be ruthless.”
Chiefs play host to Baroka FC on Wednesday and Katsande says he’s well aware of the threat the PSL newbies pose.
“Obviously we’ll give them the necessary respect that they neem as they have shown they are a good club. But we are trying to keep the momentum going and we have to pick up points as its’s our home game.
“We as a club and players are always trying to keep innovating and to stay ahead and to make our fans happy and satisfied with our performances,” Katsande concludes.
