Cape Town - Siboniso Gaxa is relieved the attention has quickly shifted from the MTN8 to the Telkom Knockout, where Kaizer Chiefs were drawn with last year's finalists, Platinum Stars.

The draw and the shift to the Telkom Knockout was a welcomed change from Gaxa as he and his team-mates move away from the disappointment of losing to Ajax Cape Town in the final of the MTN8 Cup.

"This gives us an opportunity to forget about it quickly, focus on the next game and try to move on as quickly as possible even though it's still at the back of our minds," Gaxa said.

"It's always good when we have matches to play because we want to play and get the result because losing isn't a nice feeling. But we can only learn from it and move on."

Chiefs can bounce back as early as Wednesday when they host University of Pretoria in the Absa Premiership.

"This is a big one for us, coming from the defeat," Gaxa said.

"We need to man up. We need to show what we have been doing in the past couple of games before the final.

"It's tough when you are coming from a defeat but we must move forward and win on Wednesday. The most important thing is that we need to perform."
