Chiefs face Polokwane City in a league encounter at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday, and a win for Chiefs could see them level on points with the likes of Swallows and SuperSport

Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has expressed his disappointment following their failure to progress to the final of the Telkom KO Cup last weekend.

However, Khune said that they are aiming for a quick comeback as they face Polokwane City in a league match tonight (Wednesday) at the FNB Stadium.

Chiefs suffered their only second defeat at home in all competitions since Stuart Baxter took over at the beginning of last season, and Khune said that they cannot afford to lose two games in a row.

"We are disappointed by the result of the past weekend. We have to bounce back from that defeat. We are experienced enough to redeem ourselves," Khune told the Chiefs website.

"We are aware that Polokwane City will be motivated by their past weekend's result. But they must know that they are coming to FNB Stadium. We cannot afford to lose two games in a row," he said.

Khune still believes that AmaKhosi have a good chance of defending their league title despite losing out on two major trophies - MTN 8 and Telkom Knockout Cup.

"It is still very early to write us off. We saw last season, we were knocked out of the MTN8 and TKO, but we remained focused and we eventually won the double.

"We have big heart and character. We will up our game and pull up our socks. The coach spoke to us and reminded us of our roles and responsibilities. We will take it one game at a time," added Khune.

Khune is optimistic that Chiefs will turn the corner and start winning games consistently in order to revive the same mentality that they had last season.

"We will revive the same mentality that saw us doing well in the past. We have a title to defend and we will do just that," concluded Khune.
