Head Coach, Dan Malesela refused to point fingers at the match officials after the Chilli Boys suffered their first defeat in the league this season against Golden Arrows at Princess Magogo Stadium, KwaMashu in Durban on Saturday afternoon.

The Port Elizabeth-based side came to the game high on confidence following a 4-1 win away to Baroka FC in their last game.

The match clearly dominated by the visiting team,  was marred by controversial decisions but Malesela insisted that his side must find solutions following the defeat.

“I do not want to start talking about match officials,  we must focus on bouncing back from this defeat,” insisted Malesela.

“In football such things happen, you win some and you lose some. We lost against Sundowns and bounced back.

“We must go back to the training ground and fix what we did not do right today,” said Malesela after the game.

Chippa United enjoyed the lion share of possession in the first half and the Pretoria-born coach felt his side should have capitalized.

“I am not happy that we did not turn our possession into goals. We seemed a bit slow in the first half, I’m  not sure if it was because of heat.

“We will continue playing our way though, and you can see the confidence the lads have on the ball.

“The idea is to keep the ball as long as we can,  and open up the opposing team,  and today when we did we did not convert our chances.

“We must continue to improve , and we have couple of days to work on our back in PE before our next game,” added Malesela.

Chippa United will be hoping to be back at their best when they visit Highlands Park in Tembisa next Friday for the Telkom Knockout.
