‘Shabba’: Every Game For Chiefs Now A Cup Final
Kaizer Chiefs’ veteran midfielder, Siphiwe Tshabalala, says the Amakhosi will be treating each game as a cup final and are simultaneously looking to consolidate their lead at the summit of the Absa Premiership.
Stuart Baxter’s side who come off a morale-boosting 1-0 win over Township Rollers in their CAF Champions League second leg tie, still lead the race in top spot with 47 points, but have Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits breathing down their neck with 37 points each.
The Glamour Boys next host Ajax Cape Town on Wednesday evening at the FNB Stadium, and ‘Shabba’ told the Siya crew that there will be no easy games from now on going forward.
He said all the matches will be like cup finals which they need to win by all means.
"Each and every game now is a cup final. We also have to consolidate our position at the top by winning these games."
“Every team wants to be winning now and we are aware of that. We want to maintain our position and as long as we win games, we will achieve that. On Wednesday we will be looking for the three points," the former Bafana Bafana midfielder concluded.
In the last league encounter between the two sides, Amakhosi claimed a narrow 1-0 win, courtesy of a Tefu Mashamaite header at the Cape Town Stadium.
The match will commence on Wednesday, March 4, at 19:30.
