Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande said everything that the club had achieved this season, would be completely irrelevant ahead of the Premiership fixture against Bidvest Wits on Wednesday.

During the first twelve rounds of the season Chiefs have produced a flawless campaign, but there have been signs of vulnerability during the past two weeks and Katsande is well aware of it. That, coupled with a resurgent Wits outfit makes this week’s fixture that much more complicated for the league leaders.

"Our focus is on the Wits game," said Katsande on Tuesday.

Wits currently occupy the third position on the league standings, having accumulated 20 points this season. They are now just ten points behind Chiefs.

"We forget the past and we also don’t look too far ahead. Our next match is at Bidvest Stadium," added Katsande.

"A game against Wits is always tough. Besides that, they play at home.

"On the other hand, we want to secure maximum points. We just have to implement the coach’s game plan."

The one facet of the game that has been of particular concern to the Chiefs fraternity has been the failure to convert opportunities into goals during their past two fixtures.

Katsande noted the concern but also highlighted the fact that Chiefs emerged unscathed in both those fixtures, which he felt was a positive sign, if ever there was one.

"The positive thing is that in the past we often lost after struggling to put the ball in the net," said Katsande.

"Now, at least, we still pick up points. However, I don’t want to dwell too much on the past. You learn from it and you move on."
