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 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.
