Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande says Amakhosi are hungry for their PSL encounter against University of Pretoria.

According to Chiefs' official website, Katsande believes that the Naturena side need to start focusing on the “here and now” as they look to secure the Premiership title.

There are five games left this season and Amakhosi are at the top of the league table, boasting 57 points from 25 games.

Their nearest title contenders are Mamelodi Sundowns who find themselves on 47 log points after 24 matches.

Chiefs play AmaTuks at Pretoria’s Tuks Stadium on Tuesday night (kick-off is at 19:30). The university side are in tenth position, having booked 30 points from 24 games.

Earlier in the season Amakhosi won 2-1 at home, thanks to two goals from Reneilwe Letsholonyane.

Last Thursday, Chiefs beat AmaZulu 1-0 with Bernard Parker getting the match winner.

“AmaZulu was an important game,” reflects Katsande.

“We lost our last game against Raja Casablanca, had a long journey home from Morocco and wanted to get back to winning ways.”

About the Tuks clash, the Zimbabwean midfielder added: “There are three points at stake. The coach also stresses - ‘enjoy the moment and take one game at a time’. We are ready and hungry for the match.”
