Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala says the team have
targeted nothing less than all three points when they host Golden Arrows
on Wednesday evening.
According to the Football411.com website, Amakhosi are looking to break clear at the top of the standings,
having seen Mamelodi Sundowns climb level on points following their win
over University of Pretoria on Saturday.
Chiefs, though, have two games in hand over the Brazilians, with
one of those coming against rock-bottom Arrows at Soccer City this week,
while Saturday will see the Glamour Boys and Downs lock horns in a
potentially season-defining clash.
"It is going to be a tough one in the sense that we want to
continue with our good run in the league," the Chiefs skipper told his
club's official website.
"They will be coming to us with their guns blazing as they are
fighting for dear life to stay in the top flight. To us, this is another
challenge that we have to go through to defend our title,"
"They always give us a tough time; our games against Arrows have
always been a close contest but we always apply ourselves well every
time we play against them.
"This is going to be different because to them is like going to play a cup final."
Chiefs will first need to bounce back from their CAF Champions
League exit at the weekend where they were dumped out after losing 3-2
on aggregate against AS Vita Club.
"We want to continue where we left off before we went to play in
CAF. We want to remain on top of the log. We have planned for nothing
else but a win," Shabba continued.
