Tefu: We Don't Restrict Ourselves

Kaizer Chiefs take on Platinum Stars in an Absa Premiership clash on Saturday night, September 21.

It's an important few days for Chiefs in the league and cup, as Amakhosi face Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 second leg semi-finals on Tuesday (24 September). 

Chiefs recently returned to form with a 2-0 win over Maritzburg United, although were less than convincing in the following 0-0 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic, as Stuart Baxter made some adjustments to his attack.

Nonetheless, Chiefs defender Tefu Mashamaite believes that whatever system is used against any opposition team, it's up to the players to make Baxter's flexible system work.

He said, "Football is about team work and the system that we use is just to support the team in the way we play, and it is all up to the coach as to which system we play. But in the field of play, us players, we don't restrict ourselves to being either in defence or attack."

Nonetheless, Stars hold a slight edge over the Glamour Boys in recent times. Dinaledi beat Chiefs 2-0 at home last season and managed a 0-0 draw in the away league game.

The action gets underway from 20h15 at FNB Stadium.
