Maritzburg United pulled off a stunning 2-1 upset victory against Absa Premiership log leaders Kaizer Chiefs over the weekend.
The result sees Maritzburg march into the final of the Telkom Knockout where they will meet Mamelodi Sundowns.
However, Maritzburg coach Eric Tinkler felt his side missed the chance to give Chiefs a real hiding due to the opportunities they missed.
Tinkler said, "It is clear-cut chances‚ we could have scored six or seven.”
SowetanLIVE reported on Tinkler's halftime team talk and why he expects so much from his charges.
Tinkler added, "That is why I came in at halftime‚ when we are 1-0 up‚ and I’m screaming and shouting because I am angry."
The Maritzburg mentor added that his expectations are high as he feels his players have the talent to deliver.
Maritzburg completely outplayed the Amakhosi and Tinkler counted at least 10 clear cut opportunities to score.
Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane couldn't resist a little dig at rivals Kaizer Chiefs following his side's victory over Golden Arrows.
Mosimane asked, "Who's got a league title? It's us, no one else. We have a league tittle, it's in Chloorkop."
Mosimane rubbed more salt into the wounds of Chiefs supporters as he reminded them that the season only ends in May.
He added, "Let's talk in May, not now. So that's the way it is, no one has the trophy, it's us."
