Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala says
Wednesday night’s 1-0 loss to Maritzburg United is no reason to push the panic

Chiefs’ lead at the top of the Premiership table was cut to
just eight points after Mamelodi Sundowns beat Polokwane City, resulting in
talk that the Brazilians can repeat last season’s achievement, when they made
up an 11-point gap to pip AmaKhosi to the title.
Tshabalala is calling for Chiefs’ players and supporters to
remain calm and maintain their belief that the title is theirs.
"We are disappointed with the results from the match.
This does not mean we should start panicking, both players and the supporters.
No one is perfect and all big teams in any league lose games," the former
Bafana winger wrote on his personal website.
"What we really need to put in the back of our minds is
the fact that all teams are now fighting to either win the league or survive
relegation. This means all matches will be tough.
"For us it is back to the drawing board to fix minor
glitches that stop us from getting the desired results. All is not lost. We
will get it right."
