Johannesburg - Veteran left back Tsepo Masilela believes Kaizer Chiefs need
26 points from the next 10 league matches to stay in contention for Premiership
Steve Komphela's, charges who clinched their fourth league
victory in a row by beating Maritzburg United last Saturday, will look to keep
the momentum going when hosting Highlands Park in a crucial Premiership clash
at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
"It may be premature to talk about challenging the
league title for now, but the fact is that we are currently amongst the
contenders and are aiming to win silverware this season," he told Vodacom
"So, to keep up with other title contenders means we
need to be consistent until to the end, because title contention is a marathon.
"Our level of confidence is high and we are ready to
take on any opposition, but at the same time we realise an importance of
treating every team we face with equal importance, irrespective of their
position on the log table.
"Every team is now fighting for vital points, and there
is no easy game at all at this stage of the season.
"For us the next 10 league games will be the crucial
ones, and with 13 games to go I think probably 26 points in 10 games will be
essential for us to consolidate our position amongst the log leaders," he
