Head Coach, Teboho Moloi is confident that his charges will turn the corner despite their goalless draw at home against Golden Arrows.
It was a successive draw at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium after a 1-all draw against Bidvest Wits.
The Port Elizabeth-based side controlled the proceedings and created a lot of opportunities, but they failed to convert.
Moloi addressing the media after the game insisted that his charges are on the right track.
“The boys once again played well today. It was an excellent performance, just unfortunate we could not take our chances.
“Converting our chances has been our Achilles heel but there is no reason to despair, we are still five points adrift from no.2.
“I feel the team is getting back to the same level that saw us climbing the log in the first round. We have played three games, won one and drawn two. It’s not too bad.
“We played against a very good team in Golden Arrows. When we played them back in October they were on top of the log, and now they are below us. Both teams were cancelling each other in a way.
“I will always have respect for Arrows, they have a brilliant tactician in Clinton Larsen.
Chippa United has won one in four at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium but Moloi is confident his charges will turn the corner.
“Our intention is always to win, especially at home and we will win. We will turn the corner,” said Moloi.
Chippa United remained on 8th position with 24 points after 18 games.
Moloi was forced to make a change inside 25 minutes with Katlego Mashego being replaced by Zaphania Mbokoma.
“Katlego felt something on his hamstring as he was going for the ball,” revealed Moloi.
Chippa United will travel to Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday, 26 January to face high-flying Maritzburg United.
