Chiefs out for revenge

Soweto - Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to bounce back from two defeats in a row when they host Orlando Pirates in another Soweto derby for an Absa Premiership match at FNB Stadium on Saturday, kick-off at 15h00.

The two Soweto giants have already met on three occasions at the start of the 2011/12 football campaign, twice in preseason (Vodacom Challenge and Black Label Carling Cup) and recently in the final of the MTN8.

On all three occasions the Buccaneers have walked away victorious and Amakhosi attacking midfielder Josta Dladla admits they are looking for revenge.

“Of course we are looking for revenge. We have lost to them three times already and we are taking it personally.

“Losing the MTN8 final was losing R8 million. Also our pride was dented and a lot of the fans will be angry, as are we. We are not happy we lost the game. Personally, I hate to lose and we all want to show the Pirates players they can’t beat us again.”

Chiefs also come into this game after suffering their first defeat in the league losing 2-1 to Ajax Cape Town in midweek and Dladla tells us it is going to be hard to bounce back.

“It’s going to be difficult. It is easy to fall down, but it is difficult to get back to your feet. Now we have to show character after losing the final against Pirates and the league match against Ajax, but I believe we have that character.

“Remember it is not about how you fall down, but rather about how you rise up. We just need to be positive, show our good character out there and bounce back with a win,” said Dladla who only made a second half substitute appearance against Ajax.

From the Pirates camp, Ndumiso Mabena knows Chiefs will be looking for some kind of revenge.

“Chiefs have lost two games in a row now. They will not want to lose a third, so they will come out firing, but we are ready for them.”

Still, despite the loss Chiefs are third in the league standings one place higher that Pirates in fourth, but Mabena says that will not be the case after Saturday, “We will go above them if we beat them and that is our goal at the moment.”

The Buccaneers come into this match off the back of a 1-0 win over Santos in midweek thanks to a goal from Mabena, his second of the season. On getting the goal Mabena said, “It felt good to score. I just got in the right area and I took my chance.

I am hoping to score at least two on Saturday against Chiefs.”
