Chiefs beat Arrows 2-0 in a league match played at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday night.

It was their third successive win, having beaten AmaZulu and Baroka in their last two games.

“Just to mention it, I think in the PSL, Kaizer Chiefs was not able to lately in the history to win against Baroka FC, we did it. Now Golden Arrows is a very difficult opponent, they always have something to deliver, [on a] counter very good,” Middendorp told SuperSport TV.

“We planned it, we discussed it, what’s important we saw they had two games (in a week) and in the third game both teams will have an issue with the energy. You have to show a bit of a grown-up.”

The German mentor believes the communication between his forwards Khama Billiat and Lazarus Kambole needs to improve.

“There’s a lot of space for improvement on our side, we know it. In the last ten minutes, the lack of understanding [with] Khama [Billiat] and Lazarous [Kambole], the movement, the run – still not knowing what to do, where to go, which way I have to serve to assist the teammate but it’s absolutely normal, still the beginning of the season,” he added.
