Kaizer Chiefs have been advised to work on their concentration, commitment and attitude as they gear up for their Nedbank Cup match.

In their Last 16 stage of the prestigious competition, Chiefs will take on NFD side Stellenbosch FC at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Having previously struggled against lower league teams in the competition in previous seasons, former player Humphrey Mlwane has given advice to the Amakhosi on how to approach this evening’s match.  

“I think if their (Chiefs players) mindset is right, everything will be fine. Sometimes they take NFD teams for granted. They must show commitment and hunger because those boys (Stellenbosch FC) will show hunger. They will show hunger because they are playing against Kaizer Chiefs. Chiefs should not take those boys for granted. They should double their efforts. They can win the game, I don’t see any problem that will stop them. They (Chiefs) will have to use their experience to make sure that they punish those boys,” said Mlwane.

Mlwane believes that he managed to identify some of the mistakes Chiefs made in their 3-1 loss to Orlando Pirates in the league last weekend.

“Concentration, commitment and attitude will need to change because of last weekend (against Pirates), their concentration was poor, especially at the back. Their commitment was not enough, especially in the second half. If they can improve on those aspects and make sure that they keep the ball for longer periods, they will be fine,” added the former midfielder.

“NFD teams always mark and they don’t give their opponents space to do as they please. Chiefs should be careful on that, and make sure that they don’t give the ball away too often. They should punish those boys with every opportunity they get,” he concluded.

Last season, Chiefs were 3-0 winners over Stellenbosch when the two teams met in the Last 32 stage of the competition.

Komphela's future at Chiefs is secured because Chiefs will beat this lower division team Stellenbosch fc, and everything about losing to bitter rival in Pirates will be forgotten.

If they managed to stop a high scoring team with deadly strikers how can they fail to contain a 1 (one) goal Chiefs with strikers firing blanks?? The game will go into extra time and be decided by penalties. One keeper and one player will make a mistake that will be detrimental to his team.

Chiefs will be playing against a small,weak,helpless,powerless and sponsorless lower division team. Therefore, I don't expect Chiefs' fans to make noise about praising Chiefs' players, telling us how who and who are clicking, How Komphela has been fumbling and how deadly one striker is, since Stellenbosch fc have no quality players to match Chiefs' average players!

Humphrey Mlwane! what a Gentle Man! I watched this Man as a Football Player while he was still playing for Moroka Swallows. A Man with few words, a hard tackler, workaholic defensive midfielder. Ja...pity the current fau players are useless.
