Komphela On Having A ‘Full Swing’ At Stars… Twice

Steve Komphela isn’t worried about facing Free State Stars twice in the Absa Premiership and Nedbank Cup, saying that Kaizer Chiefs are ‘professional enough’.
 
 
The Amakhosi take on Ea Lla Koto this evening in a must-win game if they’re to try and close the gap on Mamelodi Sundowns, but it will be no easy feat against a Stars team that has only lost two home games in all competitions this season.
 
Chiefs are currently fifth in the Absa Premiership going into tonight’s clash and will be weighing Stars up ahead of their Nedbank Cup semi-final on the weekend of April 21st.
 
Komphela knows the importance of the games but insists that the Nedbank game has no bearing on this evening’s encounter.
 
He told the club’s official website, “We are looking at a continuation after booking a win in last Saturday’s cup game… We hope lady luck will add to the chances that we create and that, as a result, we will score more goals.  
 
 
“That we will face them soon again in a cup match will have no impact on today’s encounter. There is a lot at stake, as both league and cup matches are equally important. We will not pull any punches; we will have a full swing at them.
 
“Of course, the psychological impact of having a league and a cup match against Free State Stars in a short space of time will be there, but we are professional enough to know that every game is as important.”
 
The game at Goble Park is due to get underway at 19h30, with both teams capable of possibly putting an end to each other’s title ambitions with a victory.
