Chiefs were humbled 1-0 by the National First Division outfit at Moses Mabhida Stadium as their trophy drought continues for another season.

“It’s something [like] you think you’re in a dream but congratulations to TS Galaxy. It was a good second half, we pressurised and got the final third entries but, it’s not the first time, probably the entire six months now,” Middendorp told SuperSport TV.

“It’s the same story, we are not finalising our movements. Then in the end we got caught by a penalty like this. I don’t know if it was a penalty, I don’t know if it was an offside. I have no idea, but good we haven’t scored and that’s the story.

“It was better in the second half but in the end when you’re not finalising the moves, the penetration and not being calm in the final third, you’re not good and you end up like this.”

Middendorp was asked about what needed to be done in pre-season to fix the team but he was still in shock and apologised to the supporters instead.

“At this time I can [only] say sorry, the support was fantastic they came from all over the country to really make it happen. At the moment it’s shocking, a huge disappointment really,” he said.
