Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic admitted that their Absa Premiership 1-1 draw against Bidvest Wits was a bitter pill to swallow.

The Serbian-born scored for Amakhosi in the first half as he finished off a headed effort from a corner-kick.

Wits never seemed to give up on equalising as the Students continued to create chances and eventually Cole Alexander’s volley hit the back of the net late in the second half.

During his post-match interview on SuperSport TV, Nurkovic was not a happy as he had the chance to seal the victory in the 88th minute of the game but his effort struck the goal posts.

"My job as a striker is to score as much goals as possible to help the team because we are all fighting for the same goals," Nurkovic said.

"Me personally, I am not happy with one point, but this is football. Sometimes you win, lose, draw. it doesn't really matter. All we have to do is focus on the next game."

Amakhosi remain top of the log as second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns were held to a goalless draw on Tuesday against Orlando Pirates.

The Glamour Boys are next in action against Polokwane City at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.
