Komphela laments lack of goals

It has been three games since Amakhosi last bulged the net during regualtion time and that particular stat has become cause for concern for Komphela.

A compounding factor has been the lack of efficacy from those in the squad credited as attackers with the only striker to have scored this season being Michelle Katsvairo.

"From the team’s point of view it is concern, but when it come to the strikers, one hopes it doesn’t get into their heads up until it becomes too much of a weight that they cannot apply themselves," said Komphela.

"You could feel the anxiety from our supporters in relation to getting a goal. The primary responsibility of any forward is to score goals and when those goals are not forthcoming it works on their confidence.

"If you go back and look at the number of goals we had scored, yes strikers were involved, but they were more of team goals so we need to go back and start generating goals so that the whole team takes responsibility in goal scoring. Truly so, it is concerning but we will go back and work on it. This is what you get paid for.

"If you don’t score you don’t win. The best result you get is a draw like it happened in the previous match against Baroka FC. If we can’t get it in the open player [we must] try and get from the set pieces."
