SuperSport United Kaitano Tembo believes his team can bring a positive result against Kaizer Chiefs in the second leg of the MTN8 Cup semi-final this coming Saturday.

United drew 2-2 in the first leg played on Sunday. Chiefs have an away goal advantage, and Tembo’s charges should score and avoid conceding to have a chance of making it to the final and defending their title.

Speaking after the match, the coach said: “It was a good game for the fans, and we can say that it is advantage Chiefs‚” he said after the match.

“But‚ we know this game can only finish on Saturday in the second leg and we have the squad and the quality to go and get the result at FNB.”

Tembo, however, was not fully impressed with the performance of his team.

“In the second half, we lost concentration and conceded a goal in a critical phase of the match where we should have been focused.

“That goal put us back because we wanted to extend the lead a little bit longer, and it affected our plan,” he added.
