Chiefs will play for honour
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Mthokozisi Yende insists the Amakhosi remain motivated to win, despite drifting out of title contention.
Chiefs are preparing to take on league leaders Ajax Cape Town on Saturday and Yende is determined to play a part in the PSL title hunt by beating the Urban Warriors.
He told their official website: "We have our honour and our brand to play for in the games that are left for us this season.
"Ajax are the form team in the league at the moment, they obviously have the title on their mind. For us it will mean a lot to get a win against a team who are pushing for the championship.
"It's important for us to go out there and give Ajax a team who are strong in all departments, a real difficult run out, like I said they want the title and hopefully we can test them by putting up a real good showing from our side.
"It would be nice to deal a hand in deciding who can call themselves the champions later this month."
He continued: "The best way for us to look forward is to end this season by closing off with a row of victories.
"We also have a view to next season and we want to come back stronger in the future and the best way to do that would be to finish as high up in the table as we can this season. That will help set a bench mark for us on which to build in the next campaign.
"We might be hurting after these recent loses but we not short of courage and motivation.
"We are highly motivated for the game like I said we playing for our fans and we hope to make them smile on Saturday."
