Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela was visible delighted in reliving Lewis Macha's first goal for the club.

The Zambian international guided home a glancing header to seal a 2-0 win for the Amakhosi over Orlando Pirates in the 2016 Carling Black Label Cup on Saturday; only their second triumph in the competition since 2011.


Chiefs - eager to right the wrongs of last season - were the better team throughout the 90 and finally go their reward through Erick Mathoho in the second stanza. Macha,who rose off the bench to make his debut, wrapped things up with an expert header from close range in the dying moments of the clash.

"I thought for a pre-season match against Orlando Pirates, we performed well, we also got a result," Komphela told SuperSport in the aftermath. "In any match you are looking at the performance and the outcome.

"I thought in the first half we could have gone into the dressing room with at least one goal, but you can't ask for more.

Komphela continued: "Macha came in, a nice glancing header, he's a strong boy. I hope whatever we are working towards will come out the way we wish.

"The only thing that gives us pleasure is that most of the people [fans] here today - their levels of happiness will be in the red."
