McCarthy takes positives from loss to Chiefs

McCarthy takes positives from loss to Chiefs

AmaZulu were unlucky to lose 1-0 to Kaizer Chiefs in a DStv Premiership clash at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium in Durban on Wednesday afternoon.

A disappointed Benni McCarthy however, took positives from loss to Kaizer Chiefs.

As a result of the defeat‚ Usuthu remain ninth in the standings with 10 points from as many games but coach McCarthy was impressed with the fighting spirit shown by his players as they pushed Chiefs all the way at Kings Park.

“I am disappointed with the result but happy with the performance of the players because we pushed them all the way to the end searching for that equaliser‚” said McCarthy‚ who vowed Usuthu will continue working behind the scenes to improve their situation on the log.

“We could have had it but we didn’t have the right scoring boots today. We will continue to work because there are so many positives to come out of the game.

“You could see the confidence‚ the way we moved the ball around‚ the chances we created but we must work on putting those chances away.”

Usuthu put up a dominant performance after going behind to an early goal from the Amakhosi’s Samir Nurkovic, but ultimately were unable to find a way back into the game.

The result, AmaZulu’s fourth loss of the season, sees them remain in ninth place on the log on 10 points, now ahead of Chiefs only on goal difference.
