Chiefs’ Keeper: We Put Ourselves On The Back Foot

Goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is aware that Kaizer Chiefs need to give everything in their next encounter in order to recover from a big knock at the weekend.

Amakhosi suffered a humiliating 3-0 loss to Orlando Pirates in the first leg of the MTN8 competition but will need to quicklt pick up themselves as they prepare for their next DStv Premiership encounter.

The Glamour Boys will come up against TS Galaxy on Wednesday evening.

“Currently, we put ourselves on the back foot and it is very important now that every single one of us realises where we are going wrong and we are trying to work on that,” Akpeyi told the media.

“We know that all we need to do is put everything that we have into the next game to make sure we make up for the loss against Pirates because at the moment in time, the earlier we start getting the points, the earlier for us to be on the run with the title. 

“Every game matters, it is not about the league or the cup game because even the cup game is more important because winning the trophy is very close.

“But it is just important for us to make sure in every game we do better than the previous game and that wasn’t the case with the Pirates game but we hope that the game against Galaxy, we (can) come up a bit better.”
