Bingera rues missed chances in win over KSS Jets

FOOTBALL: Bingera admit they still need to play better despite starting the season with a 4-1 win over the KSS Jets in the Wide Bay League.

Starting its season away from home, the side scored three second half goals to secure the win.

But it could have been more.

Missing chances early the side were deadlocked at 1-1 at half time after conceding what they called a poor goal to the Jets.

Bingera coach Brett Kitching said that ruined what was a good win.

"The first half was terrible, we had one on one chances but couldn't take them,” he said.

"We could have added a couple of goals and 6-1 would have been a fair result.”

Despite that Kitching said he was pleased with how the team responded after half time. "We were much brighter,” he said.

"Scott Bretag played well up front with great work rate and Frenchman Mickael Baruch was great in the midfield.”

The side will now face Brothers Aston Villa next with Kitching conceding that match would be their first real test for the year.

For the KSS Jets they said the Stripeys were too good on the counter-attack on the night.

"We should've been slowing (the ball) down and trying to nail things,” Jets coach Phil Rimmer said.

"We didn't and they took advantage of it.”

Rimmer said the side also needs to do better at set pieces after conceding two goals from them.

The side will face The Waves in two weeks.
