Kaizer Chiefs travel to Polokwane to face a very competitive SuperSport United team on Wednesday evening at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
Following their 0-0 draw against Royal AM on Saturday, Amakhosi are looking to return to winning ways and climb further in the DStv Premiership log.
The biggest challenge for Molefi Ntseki now is which team should he field for Wednesday’s game. If he plays his trusted eleven, one or two key players might get injured or suspended during the game thus missing out on Saturday’s MTN8 clash against Mamelodi Sundowns.
Kaizer Chiefs play the Brazilians on Saturday afternoon in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-final. Ntseki’s team managed to play to a 1-1 draw at FNB in the first leg but still have a chance to progress to the final should they find a way to beat Masandawana.
KAIZER CHIEFS AND SUNDOWNS RESUME MTN8 BATTLE THIS WEEKEND
Sundowns have Orlando Pirates to deal with on Wednesday which might play in Chiefs’ favour.
Downs have enough depth to play Pirates and Chiefs in a space of three games but Rulani Mokwena might opt to play his experienced squad against Pirates in Orlando.
Ntseki though says Kaizer Chiefs will go all out against SuperSport.
“For us (the SuperSport game) it’s a cup final. You can’t go to the final if you don’t win your semifinal. You have to give your ‘A’ game. We have experience of going through situations like this. We had an away game against Stellies in Cape Town before we played Sundowns (in the MTN 8 semifinal first leg).
“I think the guys gave a very good account of themselves and tactically we had a good plan against Stellies, and won that game. We came back to prepare for Sundowns where everything went very well for us, except for the last minute where we were supposed to go home with a win. The approach is the same going into this game. It is one game at a time,” he said.
