Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Dean Furman admits he is relishing the chance to face defending Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

The Bafana Bafana midfielder insists he has nothing but respect for the Soweto giants, who are home to a number of his international team-mates, but says any emotions will be left in the changing room come kick-off.

The two title contenders also have a score to settle, with United having snapped Chiefs' 24-match unbeaten run in the league last season, while this weekend's match has already been tipped to have a big impact in the title race.

And Furman, who joined Matsatsantsa in the recent transfer window, told KickOff: "These are big games and as players we want to be involved in big games.

"It's an exciting game for us. We have to stay focused and we have to believe in what we are doing. We have worked hard at training in the last few days and come Saturday we will be ready.

He added: "Kaizer Chiefs are a big team. I have played with many boys from Chiefs in the national team, but for us it is important to remain focused.

"We have to keep the same mentality as we have done since the start of the season where we have been unbeaten in the league."
