In light of their shock-loss for Baroque, Kaizer Chief coach Ernst Middendorp suggested he missed something, and due to the incoherence of Amakhos, they are now virtually out of the title race.
Glamor Boys suffered a defeat at Barclay in the FNB on Saturday night against 1: 0, as a sign of victory over the strike by Tshidiso Patjie.
Middendorp admitted that the late challenge at the Absa Premiership was beyond their reach.
"I know we have a certain amount of complacency and we have a lot more work," said Middendorp.
"It does not surprise me, I know that something is missing and that it is not there to be consistently successful, I know it and I see it every day."
The bosses are seventh in the league rankings with 36 points after 25 games – eight points for table tops Orlando Pirates.
The Amakhos were returned to the country after spending the weekend in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals.
The Tactician born in Germany saw the defeat in the days preceding the match during the weekend.
