Chiefs’ Toughest Journey Discussed

Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has labelled the weekend’s away trip to Black Leopards the “toughest journey” for Amakhosi this season.

The German watched on as his side laboured to a 1-1 draw with struggling Lidoda Duvha despite drawing first blood via a Samir Nurkovic header, which was eventually cancelled out by Mogakolodi Ngele’s stunning free-kick in the first half.

Middendorp and his men travelled some 510 kilometers from their base in Johannesburg to the Thohoyandou Stadium to face Leopards.

“It is by far, in the South African PSL, the toughest journey, in particular if you have to play in the afternoon. I think it would be a little more comfortable if you were to play in the evening. So coming here, with all the circumstances, is by far the toughest journey in South Africa,” the coach told reporters.

Having now made the trip back, Middendorp will be relieved that Chiefs, who remain top of the Absa Premiership table, do not have any midweek fixtures and will use that time to prepare for their next match, away to Golden Arrows, on Saturday at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
