Seema: Arrows deserved to beat Chiefs

Premiership

Golden Arrows coach Lehlohonolo Seema felt his charges were full value for their 1-0 victory over Kaizer Chiefs.

Knox Mutizwa capitalised on a defensive error from Erick Mathoho to score what would end up being the only goal of the game as Arrows claimed their sixth win of the season.

It was Arrows' first win over Chiefs since 2018 and the Arrows coach was pleased with what he saw on Saturday night.

"Glory must go to the almighty one," Seema told SuperSport TV.

"I think this victory today you can see we came under siege for the better part of the match. I think first half the few chances that we got and we did not take. You start thinking is it their moment, especially when they have their set-pieces.

"I think this game we should have finished in the first half because we knew they were never going to give up. If we can cut the transition and the second ball they're going to resort to the set-pieces. I think they had more set-pieces and corners than us. The good thing is we worked on them. The guys were resilient and I think we deserved to win but not by one goal. No disrespect to the opponent. I'm happy that we got the clean sheet.

"This team is capable of scoring anytime. It's just a matter of if we can use our chances. But now even after we score goals we end up conceding goals and soft goals. The problem is if the team is there for the taking we have to score one, two, three and then at the end of the day Khama haunts us. At the end they were pumping everything inside and we nearly had a problem but I think the guys fought very well.

"Credit must go to Kaizer Chiefs. They didn't make it easy for us. I feel for them but I'm happy for the guys because we really wanted this one. We needed it like oxygen, this three points."
