Komphela Targets Win To Begin Onslaught For Honours
Kaizer Chiefs Have To Win Tonight Says Steve Komphela
Steve Komphela says Kaizer Chiefs need to beat Cape Town City tonight in order to begin the onslaught for the honours this season.
The Amakhosi haven’t managed to pick up a victory in 2017/18 so far as they were knocked out of the MTN8 – and beaten in the league by SuperSport United either side of drawing to Bloemfontein Celtic.
City is the only club in the league with a 100% record so far this season having won all of their Absa Premiership and MTN8 games, and recently secured a spot in the MTN8 final alongside SuperSport.
Benni McCarthy has enjoyed a good start to life at the club after replacing Eric Tinkler at the start of the campaign, and Komphela says that they must be respected.
Speaking ahead of the game tonight, he told Chiefs’ official website, “Their play has not changed in any way… They are in a good space at the moment. You can’t beat Wits three times in a short space of time and be taken lightly.
“Coach Benni is doing well in his first season as a coach. Things are going his way at the moment and that bodes well for the future of his coaching career. However, we have a game plan in place and we will use our strength to counter their threats.
“We are looking at this match to start collecting maximum points. We just have to start scoring goals and this match presents us with another opportunity. It is going to be an exciting match to watch but, a win is what we need to begin our onslaught for the honours.”
City host Chiefs at 19h30 tonight at Cape Town Stadium.
