Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka wary of Polokwane City

The Amakhosi midfielder is confident that they will return to winning ways in the league

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka says Polokwane City are always a tricky opponent as the two sides prepare to meet in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) clash on Saturday afternoon.

“It is a very important game, getting three points will mean we are still within reach of the title chasers. We owe it to ourselves and the supporters to try and get the three points,” Maluleka said to the reporters.

Looking at Chiefs' previous two league matches, they lost 1-0 to Cape Town City before playing to a 1-1 draw with Orlando Pirates.

On the other hand, Polokwane are still in high spirits after drawing 1-1 against reigning PSL champions, Mamelodi Sundowns in midweek.

“We believe. Anything is still possible. Others are still getting draws as well, so hopefully, it will swing our way,” added Maluleka.

“It’s always tricky playing Polokwane City, you never know what to expect. We respect them but we know that if we can play the kind of football we have been playing recently, then we can put ourselves in a position to win,” he said.

“We know we will create the chances, now we need to finish them,” concluded the former SuperSport United midfielder.

A victory over Polokwane will take Chiefs to fifth place on the league standings.
