Amakhosi will host their SAB Regional League opponents in the Nedbank Cup last 32 at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, and although the match pits the current Premiership leaders against a team from the fourth tier of South African football, Masilela admits the Glamour Boys cannot take anything for granted.
"It is going to be a tough one," the left-back told Chiefs' official website.
"We will have to do our best. We have to work hard.
"There are no longer small teams in football."
Chiefs will be looking for a response after suffering their first defeat of the season after going down 2-0 to SuperSport United in the league on Tuesday.
Although Amakhosi remain 10 points clear at the top, Masilela knows that will count for little in the Ke Yona competition.
"We are not focused on the 10-point gap in the league.
“We want to win every game. Ask any professional player, who enjoys losing?"
Edu Sports captain Caterpillar Monama revealed the fact they will be facing one of South Africa's most decorated clubs will only serve to inspire them this weekend.
"We admire the Chiefs players. We want to showcase our talent.
“Who knows… One of us might be recruited to join a top team. We are looking forward to Saturday."
