Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune says his teammates understand the difficulty of playing Moroka Swallows at home this season. He said Swallows will want to forget about their midweek result with a win against Chiefs.
Amakhosi have an assignment at the Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday night and a win against the Dube Birds will edge them closer to their first league title in eight years.
“We are playing Moroka Swallows on their own backyard in Dobsonville. They will come out firing so their midweek result against Chippa United will mean nothing,” Khune said during the press conference held at the PSL Offices.
“We know what is expected of us as professionals, especially wearing the gold and black in such a massive game,” he said.
Khune reflected on their first round result against Swallows and believes that they need to go out there and complete the job that they started when they beat Swallows 3-2 at the beginning of the season.
However, the Chiefs skipper maintained that they will need to be at their best to beat Swallows.
“We beat Swallows in the first round, but the job is not complete and we will need to be at our best to come back with maximum points,” added Khune.
Chiefs will be without suspended midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane for this clash, but Stuart Baxter confirmed the availability of defender Eric Mathoho who missed their last two games through injury.
