Cape Town - Kaizer
Chiefs striker Bernard Parker is hoping that his midweek goal against
Mamelodi Sundowns could be the start of a purple patch in front of goal.
The goal was Parker's first in the league this season and helped
ensure a confidence-lifting 2-1 victory away at Sundowns on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old explained just how important confidence is in
football and will now be looking to get on the score-sheet when Chiefs
meet old foes Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon
(3:30pm kick off).
"It's all about confidence. If you get given confidence, with the
quality you possess as a footballer, nothing can stop you," he said.
"The right mentality, right attitude. Keeping your mind clear all the
time. And opening your heart as well, taking more of the positives, and
the positive happenings will follow.
"Going into the game [against Pirates] with what we came back with
[against Sundowns], I think we should keep the tactical discipline. We
should keep doing what worked for us."
