Kaizer Chiefs scored 2 goals in the first quarter of the game in Free State. However, lacklustre defending saw them concede 2 goals and give away their healthy lead.
They are now 3 points behind TS Galaxy who are in 8th place.
“Well it’s the story of our season,” Coach Gavin told SuperSport TV.
“It’s the old adage – strikers win you games and defenders win you leagues. Not that we try to defend but we concede goals every week.
“It’s been poor. We have to get better.
“We work on it all the time. Lot of individual stuff.
“But I’m proud of the players. They played well today.
“We’ve been playing well this whole season. Even the games we’ve lost or drawn we’ve played well, created chances.
“I mean we created enough chances today to win three games of football. First half could have been 4-0.
“We had so many opportunities. Obviously they’re going to come back into the game but we’ve got to defend better.
“Basic things. The defending starts from the front of the team and it wasn’t there.
“But I mean I’m proud of the players. I can’t ask for more.
“They give me everything they’ve got.
“It’s been the story of our season, making forced changes and not being able to make a change to affect the game. You can say what you like.
“People say we go defensive. It’s not that. I could have made three changes at half-time.
“We soldier on. The players give me everything.
“That’s the most important thing. That’s all I can ask of them.”
“We got a lot of games. We don’t mind that.
“The desire is there. Sometimes the legs aren’t there.
“We’ve got to keep going and try to get to the end. We can still do it.
“I think we can. I got great belief.
“You saw the chances we had today away from home. If we play like that.
“Not many teams come here and dominate like that. They had one moment in the first half and they scored.” He stresses.
