Bernard Parker says that Kaizer Chiefs want to pick up three points against Maritzburg United to give them confidence against Raja Casablanca this weekend.
The Amakhosi tackle the Team of Choice in Pietermaritzburg later this evening, but will remain in KZN after the clash ahead of Saturday’s CAF Champions League game against the Moroccans.
Chiefs have already beaten Maritzburg 1-0 twice so far this season, but Parker knows that they can cause problems.
The 28-year-old told Chiefs’ official website, “Maritzburg United always give us problems. They are very physical and they will do everything to be the first to the ball. We will have to compete with them all over the field.
“We showed in the Derby that if we concentrate on ourselves we can give the opposition problems. It will give us good momentum for Wednesday’s match, not only from a team perspective but also as an individual. We learnt a lot from that second half.
“The game against Maritzburg is crucial, we want to get the three points ahead of the Raja Casablanca match, so that our mind will be clear and we will be confident going into this Champions League encounter.”
