Katsande targets 18 points from final six games

Cape Town - Willard Katsande says Kaizer Chiefs may need to win all six of their remaining league games to have a good shot at winning the title.

A 12-match unbeaten run in the league has seen Amakhosi move to within one point of pace-setters Cape Town City, with both clubs having played 24 matches.

However, Bidvest Wits are ahead of Chiefs on goal difference and have played two matches less, while Mamelodi Sundowns are only one point further back and like the Students, still have eight fixtures to play this season.

Speaking to his club's official website ahead of Tuesday night's crunch encounter against Cape Town City in Cape Town (kick off at 19:30), Katsande says the goal must be to claim 18 points from the last six games.

"We have no choice but to win all our remaining games," he said.

"We went straight back to the drawing board after the game on Saturday (the penalty shoot-out defeat to SuperSport in the Nedbank Cup).

"We speak in one voice, and that's winning all the remaining six games of the league. We are left with six games. We have to believe in ourselves."

The Zimbabwean international conceded, however, that they face a very challenging night in the Mother City against the league leaders.

"We know City very well after playing them twice this season. They are a counter-attacking team and in that case it means we have to be disciplined to guard against their breaks."

The two previous matches saw the Cape side recording a 1-0 home win in the MTN8, while the first round league affair in Soweto ended 1-1.

Apart from City, the Glamour Boys must still play SuperSport United, Golden Arrows, Polokwane City, Platinum Stars and Bidvest Wits.
