Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas was left to rue his side’s missed chances following their draw with Maritzburg United on Friday night.

The Soweto giants were held to a goalless stalemate by the Team of Choice in a Premier Soccer League (PSL) match at the Harry Gwala Stadium.

"It's a pity because this is a game to win. We created a lot of chances but in football you need to put the ball in the back of the net," Solinas told SuperSport TV.

Maritzburg played the majority of the match with 10 players after Siphesihle Ndlovu was sent off just 15 minutes into the encounter.

"The guys the put in the effort during the game. So everything is perfect, only the goal,” the Italian tactician continued.  

Amakhosi dominated the encounter, but Hendrick Ekstein, Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat were unable to convert the visitors’ chances on the night.

"We need more determination in the box. Our finishing needs more aggression and determination. We played well, we arrive near the box - we need more accuracy,” he added.

Chiefs remain winless in the league this season having recorded three draws and one defeat in their first four matches. 

"Every game is a lesson. In every game you learn something. We need to move the ball quickly because all the teams are staying behind the ball. The space is tight, we need movement. This is the lesson for today,” he explained.

"Normally we learn from the training sessions. At the moment, we don't have the training sessions because we played a lot of games. But it's good that next week we have a full week available for us to prepare for our next game,” he concluded. 

The draw left Chiefs placed 11th on the league standings having accumulated three points from four games.

They will are scheduled to face SuperSport United in the MTN8 Cup semi-final match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium next week Saturday.
