Cape Town - Kazier Chiefs winger George Lebese believes his team has made up for the Soweto derby loss with the emphatic 3-1 win over Golden Arrows.

Amakhosi, who were on the wrong end of a humiliating loss by the same score line to rivals Orlando Pirates on Saturday, were determined to get back to winning ways.

Lebese hailed the confidence booster before their rematch against Pirates in a Telkom Knockout semi-final at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, November 4.

"It was a much-needed three points. We needed to get back on the horse and we got the three points which was the most important thing," he said after picking up the Man of the Match award.

"It was a bright start. We obviously would not to concede so it is back to the drawing board. We have got a big one again on Saturday. It was a good result for us in terms of getting our confidence back."

Lebese also took time out to praise Amakhosi's fans, who turned out in numbers to support the team once again against Arrows.

"You know we really appreciate [the fans]. They are the 12th man. Every time they come to the stadium it is a morale booster for the team," he added.
