Mngqithi says that he did expect a tough game but is happy with his side's performance on the night.
"We expected a tough game against Stars, they have been doing very well but in organizational skills we managed to do much better than them."
"We stood our ground and were unfortunate to concede a late goal; I'm still pleased considering that our key players weren't available."
Mngqithi says that his players are not shattered after losing two games in a row and sees this as a learning curve moving forward to the next games.
"I don't think the players are shattered because they know that they played well. I think the reason that they looked the way they looked (morale down) after the game is because of the type of goal that they conceded.
"To me it was the kind of goal that could kill the morale, I don't think it will be long to get the morale back and it's a learning curve."
The coach also went on say that with a bit more time Chippa will improve a lot and is very optimistic about the clubs future.
"With bit of confidence we are likely to see something better and I'm very optimistic and confident from what I've seen maybe our first win will be away," he adds.
