Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane says Caleb Bimenyimana did exactly what was asked of him after scoring twice on his first start.

Chiefs came from behind to record their third win after Bimenyimana scored a brace following an early opener for SuperSport by Grant Margeman.

Zwane was asked about how aggressive Bimenyimana can be in the box after his well taken first goal.

"Yes, he's very aggressive in that near post and that's what we said to him, 'Attack the near post and the other guys will cover the far post and the penalty spot," Zwane told SuperSport TV.

"And the balls will always come in that area and he did exactly that, good assist as well from Ashley [Du Preez] but great movement from Sithebe with those half turns, connecting with Yusuf you know.

"And that one touch from Yusuf set Ashley free to be able to play the ball into the near post and that led to the first goal.

"And obviously because of the pressure that we were putting them under they were bound to crack and we managed to get a penalty and like I said we managed to create a number of chances that we could have capitalised on."

The Chiefs coach also added that adding a left-footed defender alongside Zitha Kwinika helped bring more balance to side.

"Yes we might have made a few mistakes in applying ourselves but when we were building up from the back we were very composed, we always waited for the right moment," he added.

"You could see with the first goal, we were not just kicking the ball because we were under pressure, because of the balance of play.

"Because we've got a left-footed centre-back that can easily connect with the midfielders or with Hlanti, so we needed that and let's hope that we'll keep it that way as time goes on and improve."
