Kaizer Chiefs’ coach Steve Komphela has hailed his charges for bouncing back from a humiliating loss and going on to thrash Golden Arrows 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Chiefs lost 3-1 to archrivals Orlando Pirates on Saturday and came out all guns blazing against Arrows at FNB Stadium.

“We responded well after Saturday’s derby loss,” said Komphela

“It was important to remove the salt that was on us. Arrows can really hit you on the break. We played tonight more with our heads than our hearts,” added the Chiefs boss. The Amakhosi coach was delighted with the performances of several players, including Kgotso Moleko and Hendrick ‘Pule’ Ekstein.

“There was an uproar from our supporters when we took Pule off. We needed to make that change, as he had indicated that he was finished. It was, however, great to see him give such a fine display,” said Komphela. “That’s how our supporters are. They are very close to the team. They know him from the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, following those games as well. The Chiefs way of playing is in Ekstein’s DNA – the passing, the running…. It reminds me a bit of Ace Khuse,” said the Chiefs mentor

Ekstein was applauded by the Chiefs fans whenever in possession of the ball.

Amakhosi were in third position on the log after the win over Arrows, having collected 17 points from ten games.
