thumbnail Hello,

The Glamour Boys have a mountain to climb on Saturday night, but Rusike remains optimistic that Chiefs can beat AS Vita by three goals and more

Kaizer Chiefs forward Matthew Rusike has admitted to Goal that their Caf Champions League opponents AS Vita, are a very good side as they look to beat them with a big margin to progress to the next round.

The DRC side hammered AmaKhosi 3-0 in the first leg, played in Kinshasa last weekend, but the Zimbabwean-born striker said that they are not going to panic and they will stick to their game plan.

"They (AS Vita) are a very good team," Rusike told Goal. "But we're Kaizer Chiefs and we are going to play our way, play our football and fight to get the results," he said.

The 23-year-old Rusike, who has lately enjoyed some game time under Stuart Baxter, said that the players have not stopped believing that it is possible to overturn a 3-0 deficit as they are playing at home.

He added that there is enough quality players in the Chiefs' squad that can help the team progress to the next round.

"I think it is very possible to overturn the scoreline. We are going to go out there with all guns blazing. We have quality in the squad and we know that we can do it," he added.
