Chiefs relishing Polokwane test


We are happy with the performance and satisfied that we have completed our mission in Cape Town with a win,” Komphela added. Saturday's win was the last of Amakhosi's three home games away from home in the Cape of Love & Peace. Chiefs have had five straight wins, which includes last week's CAF Champions League win over Volcan Club de Moroni.

The Amakhosi coach remains optimistic that his side is still on course to defend the Absa Premiership title: “Our title chase has never been put off. Anything can happen to log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

“We have been there before, ask Stuart Baxter - at some point we were leading with twelve points and Sundowns overtook us to clinch the title. The power to stay on top requires a lot of mental strength. A slight hiccup can derail anybody's efforts.”

Komphela describes Polokwane City as unpredictable and tricky: “We will look at their strengths and will make sure that we will be fully prepared.” Tickets for the Polokwane City match cost R40 and can be bought countrywide at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers outlets.

After the Polokwane match, the Amakhosi will then host Comorian side Volcan de Moroni at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday at 7.30pm.
