Tembo explains 1st half sub

- Kick Off.

SUPERSPORT UNITED head coach Kaitano Tembo has explained why he hauled Lucky Mohomi off in the first-half against Kaizer Chiefs.

Title-chasing Matsantsan­sa produced a laboured display in the first-half against the out-of-form Chiefs at FNB Stadium and fell behind just before the half-hour mark with Reeve Frosler netting a stunning strike.

Tembo reacted by substituti­ng the on-loan Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder five minutes later for Zimbabwe internatio­nal winger Kudakwashe Mahachi.

His tweaked tactical system seemingly inspired a second-half comeback with attacking talisman Bradley Grobler netting his 13th DStv Premiershi­p goal of the season from the spot in the second-half.

“Kuda gave us width [tactically] on the left, I think he played very well because he kept on turning Ngezana and put in crosses but overall it wasn’t a good game, but I’d take the second-half performanc­e,” Tembo explained.

“It was tactical because I thought Lucky wasn’t really giving us much legs [in midfield], in terms of energy in terms of our press he was always slow especially to gather the second ball.

“That’s why he had to bring

Jamie a bit more inside and have an out and out winger like Kuda Mahachi.” —
