Chenene: Chiefs fear Bucs duo

Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates winger Bennet Chenene claims Buccaneers players shouldn't worry about bonuses and that Kaizer Chiefs fear their current strike partnership.

Pirates face Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals this weekend, having won last Saturday's derby 3-1, and Chenene believes they shouldn't think of the bonuses on offer since it distracts some players.

"They should just take it as another game, but be very serious of winning first before thinking of anything else because you know with cup games players are distracted by things like bonuses," Chenene told Goal website.

"On the day they lose the game because of things that distracted them. They must just make sure that they don't fall into that trap to have any chance of winning the game."

The 31-year old admits that in order for Eric Tinkler's men to claim a successive derby victory, the forward pairing of Thamsanqa Gabuza and Kermit Erasmus have to be on form.

"I think this is the advantage they can use against Chiefs because both Gabuza and Erasmus are good on the ball, they're pacey and score goals," he added.

"I don't think the Chiefs defence will be able to cope with them because of the way they complement each other as a pairing."
