Chiefs were crowned league champions last week with three
matches to spare, following a 4-1 triumph over Polokwane City.
The best that previous champions, Sundowns, can hope for is
a second-placed finish, behind their old enemy. The two giants of South African
football meet at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.
Playing in front of their home fans, Sundowns will be out to
spoil the party and put a blemish on the league champion's record.
"We know what is at stake, so we just need to do our
best. It's all about pride," Kekana said.
"When Chiefs plays Sundowns it's always a tough game
and there will be no difference in this one.
"I think Chiefs will take the game seriously. They are
a disciplined team and with the points record in sight will also want to make
sure that they get as many points as possible.
"We also need to win to give us to boost ahead of the
Nedbank final and have a good atmosphere and belief the camp.
"The teams that are under us want to do their best so
that they can finish second. We can't afford to relax at this point we also
have to get points.
"We want to put smiles on the fan's faces because I
know that they want the victory against Chiefs very much."
Kick-off is at 19:30.
