Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs skipper Itumeleng Khune says his team-mates should not expect a free ride when they face Platinum Stars in the MTN8 semi-finals in two weeks’ time. Amakhosi and Dikwena will square-off in a two-legged encounter of the R8m competition after the draw was conducted at the PSL offices in Parktown on Monday. The 27-year-old goalkeeper believes the defending champions advanced to the semi-finals on merit and insists the Phefeni Glamour Boys will give them all the respect they deserve. Khune also hinted that Chiefs will be ready for a tough assignment against the title holders. “They advanced to the semi-finals because of their hard work, just like us,” said Khune.“We don’t have to go there thinking it will be much easier for us to win. They really deserve to be here in the semi-finals. They have been drawn against us now. So it’s going to be a great game.” Chiefs defeated Mpumalanga Black Aces 4-0 in the quarter-finals last weekend to book a place in the last four, while Stars defeated reigning ABSA Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns 2-1.The dates and venues for the two-legged clashes are yet to be confirmed.
