Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs face the University of Pretoria tonight in a must-win clash if the Glamour Boys stand any chance of defending their PSL title.
While Mamelodi Sundowns appear to have the league all wrapped up, there could still be a few hiccups as the season comes to an end.
According to soccerladuma, Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter, believes that tonight's game with Tuks must be approached in the right way. The coach added that his team will fight on in the league until winning the title is mathematically impossible.
He told the club's official website, “Foremost, we will be playing our normal way. And our normal way is playing to the utmost best of our abilities as professionals. As for the chances of winning the league, in this situation, you saw what happened in the other leagues overseas."
"The results can go either way in the game of football. We will fight fiercely for every point on offer. For as long mathematically or otherwise the league is not declared yet, we will play on to win our games."
He added that the club had a few injury concerns to deal with,
“It is a difficult one as you will know by now that assessing the players has been a challenge in this schedule. Maluleka, Mathoho and Gaxa are nursing an assortment of injuries, while Nkhatha will be rested. We wanted to rest more players but we want to remain serious contenders and also we would like to maintain our shape."
Baxter concluded, “Tuks are a hard working team that you cannot afford to underestimate. Steve (Barker) preaches competitiveness to his players. That’s how they are, competitive and organised. They have given us a tough time in the past and we will have to bring our all to beat them.”
This evening's action gets underway from 19:30 at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.
