Dlamini: Chiefs are beatable

Johannesburg - AmaZulu winger Sthembiso Dlamini is quietly optimistic of stunning title hopefuls Kaizer Chiefs in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday.

Usuthu will host Amakhosi at Moses Mabhida Stadium in the year's final round of fixtures, with the Premiership only resuming on 15 February in respect for the African Cup of Nations.

And while third-placed Chiefs are eight points richer than their upcoming opponents, Dlamini aims to impress on home turf.

"They are beatable if you utilise the chances given and stick them in the back of the net, just like they do," said Dlamini, who opened the scoring in the 2-1 win over Santos at the weekend.

"I know it's a challenging game for us and they will be out here in search for points just before the Christmas break," Dlamini added.

The 23-year-old takes encouragement from their efforts against the People's Team but reiterated their need to be clinical up front.

"It was good to see how we worked hand in hand as a team against Santos on the weekend," he said.

"But the negative was that we didn't finish off some of the opportunities we got, something we will not afford to do against a team like Chiefs.

"We'd also love the full points being that it's a final game of the year and it's at our home ground. It will be a perfect result for our fans."
