Gould: Chiefs must adapt

Premiership

Chiefs were beaten 3-1 by Gould's former team SuperSport United last time out, resulting in a record of two wins, two defeats and one loss from their five competitive games this campaign.
 
“Firstly, you mustn’t forget that we are not invincible,” says Gould of their results to date.
 
“Any team can concede any goals. It is more about how good the other team is on the day and against SuperSport United they wanted it more. They showed that they knew what they came into the match for and they stuck to their game-plan.

"They came with a good plan and it is one of those games where we need to know that we are not invincible.

"We need to forget about the past now because the past is only good for the sake of history and it doesn’t work for you today. You still need to work on your game today to determine what tomorrow holds for you."
 
The Amakhosi strongman believes the side must be flexible enough to adjust their game-plan depending on the opposition.
 
“Right now we need to regroup and put our Chiefs caps on and move on," he says.

"We just need to stick to our game-plan and if it worked last season it will work again but we need to apply ourselves better because we are known to play good football.

"If other teams are countering that then we need to change the game-plan and if it means we kick the ball forward, hustle and bustle but still go on and get the points then that’s it.

"Pretty football doesn’t always win you games,” adds Gould, who won the League twice with Matsatsantsa during his time in Tshwane.

The Glamour Boys, who trail log leaders SuperSport by five points, next host Maritzburg United at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
