'One point is better than a loss'

Kaizer Chiefs attacker Lebogang Manyama was disappointed to only walk away with a draw against SuperSport, but feels one point is better than a loss.

Samir Nurkovic gifted Chiefs the lead midway through the first half, while Bradley Grobler netted the equaliser before had a penalty saved as the two sides settled for a 1-1 draw.

The Chiefs attacker had some kind words for Nurkovic, who opened his account for the AmaKhosi after three games.

"Nurkovic is forever running," Manyama told SuperSport TV.
"He's always an option for us. He helps the team in a lot of ways. Way before the ball came I could see that he wanted to go. These are things we work on.

"Just sad we couldn't win the game after playing so well.

"It was a very good game from both sides. Lots of chances. We couldn't finish. We missed a one-on-one and then it goes back to our side and it's 1-1 at the end of the day.

"Good game for the fans. We're grateful for the support. We would have loved to take three points.

"But you know SuperSport are a great team and they never stop fighting. We knew when they brought on Thami (Gabuza) then the long balls were coming. We tried to deal with them. These are things we learn from.

"One point is better than a loss. Big game on Tuesday in Cape Town. So we move on from here."
