Should Chiefs Be Wary Of City?

Kaizer Chiefs take on Polokwane City this weekend in the first round of the Telkom Knockout. Should they be wary of the PSL newcomers?

Last season Chiefs dropped four points against newly promoted PSL side University of Pretoria, with a draw in their first encounter and a loss in the second.

During the campaign before that, in the 2011/12 season, the Amakhosi also dropped four points, with draws against both promoted teams that year, Jomo Cosmos and Black Leopards.

Chiefs will also be without Siphiwe Tshabalala who has been ruled out with a muscle injury.

Josta Dladla, who has played a role for the club in the last two seasons, says that they aren’t taking City lightly, even though they’ve won just one game so far this season.

Speaking to the club’s official website he said, ““It is going to be tricky, just like any cup game, you lose the game and you are out. Most people look at Polokwane City as PSL newcomers but now that they are in the PSL it means they have earned their stripes.

"We have to take them seriously as they played well in their previous league game. They will be on a high and as the old saying goes ‘playing against Chiefs they do not need motivation’.

“If I get a nod to play I will give my all and if not I will stay positive. If I don’t get a chance to play I will support the guys and wait for my turn. It is all teamwork and we are determined to advance to the next stage of the competition.”

The two teams face off at Peter Mokaba Stadium at 20h15 tomorrow night.
