Mashamaite: Chiefs Can’t Afford To Drop Points
Captain Tefu Mashamaite says Kaizer Chiefs have already switched focus to their next league encounter against Maritzburg United on Wednesday.
The Amakhosi dropped two valuable points when they were held to a goalless draw by nemesis, Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby on Saturday afternoon, and now only hold an 11-point lead over second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns who still have a game in hand.
‘Masha’ maintained that they are not focusing on the past but rather on what they can do in their upcoming matches.
He told the Siya crew that they want to continue fighting for three points and, that Maritzburg United are next.
"What we want to do is make sure we collect as many three points as we can in the remaining games.
“There are very few games remaining now and each game is almost a six pointer as all the teams want three points. We have forgotten about the derby and Maritzburg are next.
“We can't afford to drop points again. We need to collect full points against them," the former Bidvest Wits defender explained.
The Glamour Boys travel to the Harry Gwala Stadium to honour their encounter against the struggling yet tricky Team of Choice.
The match will begin at 19:30.
