Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs take on Orlando Pirates in the
Carling Black Label Cup and Tefu
Mashamaite is convinced they can win it back-to-back.
Amakhosi were the first to taste silverware last season,
after beating the Buccaneers 1-0 at the FNB Stadium last year.
It was Lehlohonolo
Majoro who pounced on Bernard
Parker's effort - which rattled the crossbar - and thundered home the only
goal of the match.
Mashamaite, who received almost 300 000 votes to play
in the derby, is weary of their rivals ability but reckons that defending their
crown is an achievable target.
“All we want to do is defend our trophy. The supporters have
shown belief in the players and now it's up to us to win the game on Saturday
(July 26) and keep the trophy at Chiefs,” said Mashamaite to Soccer
“Obviously, it won't be easy if you look at the team that
“We just have to play as a team and make sure that we don't
concede. It won't be easy, but it is doable.”
The Carling Black Label Cup is on July 26 at FNB Stadium
from 15:30pm in Johannesburg.
Can Amakhosi defend
their title or will the Buccaneers have bragging rights this time around?
