Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Morgan Gould believes Township Rollers' away goal makes the second leg of their CAF Champions League preliminary round tie more complicated.

Amakhosi hold the advantage after a 2-1 win in the first leg in Johannesburg, but the conceded goal makes their position more tenuous.

The away goals rule used in the competition effectively means that if Kaizer Chiefs lose the game 1-0 they will be knocked out of the tournament, despite a 2-2 aggregate score.

If Chiefs can get an early goal in Botswana it will make their lives significantly easier.

However, Gould admits Rollers will be no pushovers and says their style of play matches Kaizer Chiefs.

"To be honest with you, Township Rollers is a very good team," he said.

"They play the same type of football that we play and the goal away will probably help them, but if we get a goal there and we score two or three then it is done for us.

"But it will definitely be a good game.

"They are playing at home, but I think we will go to the next round.

"It's gonna be a very interesting challenge for us and we are very much up for it."
