Shabba: They'll Be Coming Guns Blazing

Kaizer Chiefs' star attacking midfielder, Siphiwe Tshabalala, believes that the club must approach their PSL fixture against Golden Arrows tonight, as a cup final.

The 29-year-old also urged his fellow teammates not to underestimate the threat posed by Abafana Bes'thende, and pointed out the difficulty Chiefs have faced in previous encounters against Arrows.

Chiefs are widely expected to be strong favourites to take the win as their opponents are rock-bottom of the PSL standings, however the risk of taking a wounded opponent lightly is something the Glamour Boys appear unwilling to take.

Amakhosi will no doubt be desperate to pick up all three points in tonight's clash - they have two games in hand over the hard-chasing Mamelodi Sundowns in the title race, and will want to create some daylight ahead of their upcoming clash against the Brazilians on Saturday (April 5).  

Nonetheless, Tshabalala has emphasised just how serious the club and his fellow players are taking the tie against Arrows. 

'Shabba' told the club's official website, "It is going to be a tough one in the sense that we want to continue with our good run in the league. They will be coming to us with their guns blazing as they are fighting for dear life to stay in the top flight. To us, this is another challenge that we have to go through to defend our title.”

He added, “They always give us a tough time. Our games against Arrows have always been a close contest but we always apply ourselves well every time we play against them. This is going to be different because to them is like going to play a cup final. We want to continue where we left off before we went to play in CAF. We want to remain on top of the log. We have planned for nothing else but a win.”

Tonight's action gets underway from 19h30 at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
