The Nedbank Cup Soweto derby loss to Orlando Pirates was the beginning of a string of losses for Steve Komphela.

After losing to Platinum Stars in a league game, Komphela make a few changes to his starting XI for their Caf Champions League game against ASEC Mimosa.

Komphela’s changes to the starting line-up are influenced by suspensions and injuries. Amakhosi have dominated possession statistics, but they did not create clear goal scoring opportunities in the games they have played so far.

In a post-match interview, Cosmos boss Jomo Sono said his players stuck to the game plan and followed the instructions they were given.

“They played according to instructions, they played according to the system. Even when Chiefs were attacking us we were not in a rush. We knew what to do because we studied Kaizer Chiefs properly against Pirates and other teams. So we knew what to do, we knew that if we could keep them from getting a goal in the first half their fans will start attacking them and it’s difficult to play when your fans are attacking you,” said Jomo Sono.
