Baroka FC coach Wedson Nyirenda feels his charges are getting better with each day, following their draw with Kaizer Chiefs.
Chiefs' winless run in the Absa Premiership was extended to three games after a 1-1 draw with Baroka on Tuesday evening.
Nyirenda believes his charges gave Amakhosi too much room to play especially in the first stanza but he says he rectified this mistake in the second stanza.
“It was not going to be easy for us. In the first half Kaizer Chiefs controlled the most parts of the game,” Nyirenda told SuperSport TV.
“We could’ve got one [goal] in the first half but we didn’t that gave them [Chiefs] a lot of space to play. They have a mature team that can play the ball around and confuse you with the passes.
“That’s the mistake we did in the first half, we gave them too much room. But in the second half, the whole second half we controlled the game. We created a lot of scoring chances we could’ve scored at least three goals. We hit the post three times I think we’re getting better each day."
Nyirenda concluded by saying that he is already looking forward to their next league match against Polokwane City in the Polokwane derby.
“This one is gone, we have done our part. Kaizer Chiefs got the better out of us by getting one point here. I think the Polokwane game will be different. We should approach it differently because it’s a local derby no one wants to die in their own backyard. It shall be a very explosive game," he added.
