Given Msimango admits inconsistency hindered Kaizer Chiefs this season.

By their own standards, the DStv Premiership club were well below their best this campaign.

With just five matches of their season to play, the club find themselves in eighth place with 33 points.

Amakhosi managed to record nine wins, six draws and 10 losses, to leave them 26 points behind champions-elect Mamelodi Sundowns and 16 points adrift of second-placed Stellenbosch.

In fact, they are closer to the bottom of the league standings than the top, with 15th-placed Richards Bay on 23 points and bottom-side Cape Town Spurs on 15 points.

Msimango explained that his side cannot expect to do any better until they find the required level of consistency.

He said on FARPost: “I think an element of inconsistency started to creep in. We let ourselves down in that aspect.

“We would play two games well, and the third and fourth games, we would become not as consistent. I think in this highly competitive league, you need to win games and convert your chances.

“I think that has been one of our downfalls this season. But is something that we have noted and something we intend to work on going forward irrespective of whatever changes may come within the club.”

Chiefs play Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday and a result for the Brazilians would see them crowned champions.

“We as players are focused on the job at hand and try to improve in each of every training session and contribute to the success of the team,” added Msimango.
