Middendorp: Points matter most

Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has emphasized the importance of the result rather than stressing over their goals conceded against Highlands Park over the weekend.

Chiefs looked to have been set to cruise to victory when they took a 3-1 lead with less than 20 minutes to go, but Highlands made a fight of it in the dying stages to end things at 3-2 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening.

The victory has since seen Amakhosi move up one spot to sixth position and cutting the gap on Absa Premiership log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns to eight points with eight games still to play.

With this in mind, Middendorp was not overly concerned by the fact that his charges once again failed to keep a clean sheet as he assured, they will fix their mistakes in training.

“The match was tough. Credit goes to Highlands Park. They really gave us a run for our money. It’s not always about how you play, it is about getting the points in the bag,” the German said after the match.

“We’re at that stage of the season where points matter most.

“We conceded soft goals but, when you score more goals than the opponent, it is easier to work on the mistakes.
