Kaizer Chiefs head coach Vladimir Vermezovic says Itumeleng Khune and Moeneeb Josephs are the reason the Soweto Derby finished goalless.
The Serbian was speaking after his charges drew 0-0 against Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
"We played today wanting to win," he says. "But the keepers were excellent and they made it difficult for the players to score.
"I'm satisfied with my players," Vermezovic says, also shooting down claims that the likes of Siphiwe Tshabalala haven't been giving their best as they are apparently reserving themselves for the World Cup in June.
"I don't believe they are doing that and I expect them to be professionals," he says.
Vermezovic was full of praise for his team's youngsters. "Today's game shows that Kaizer Chiefs has a future. We used a lot of young players in the game and I think in a couple of years they can be real stars of Kaizer Chiefs," he says.
