Komphela Identifies Two Players That Could Hurt Chiefs

Steve Komphela says that Kaizer Chiefs are planning to win all of their remaining games, and he seems to have earmarked two potential problem players against Free State Stars.
 
 
The Amakhosi take on Ea Lla Koto tonight in a game that could see them leapfrog their opponents and potentially close the gap on Mamelodi Sundowns, but Komphela knows that everybody is fighting for places at this stage of the season.
 
Stars themselves are in fourth place – one above Chiefs – and know that victory would see them move into a CAF Confederation Cup spot, overtaking Maritzburg United following their loss to Bidvest Wits last night. 
 
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website before the game, Komphela said, “We are going all out for a win… We are on a must-win-all plan for the remaining six league fixtures. It is the final lap and all the teams are making a final push. Some want to win the league, to play in the African Champions League, there (are) the Top 8 and others want to avoid relegation. So it is game on. 
 
 
“We had one training session since the Nedbank Cup game on Saturday. That’s not much, but we have recovered and are ready for Stars. They are competing well and their log position tells a story of their season so far. They play as a team. Siphelele Mthembu, who played for us, is doing well and another threat is Sinethemba Jantjie.”
 
Mthembu and Jantjie have directly contributed to 12 of Stars’ goals in all competitions so far this season, with only Mohammed Anas (6 goals) having scored more than the former Glamour Boy (5). 
 
The two sides lock horns at Goble Park at 19h30 this evening, before facing each other later this month in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals.
