Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune says that it's all up to the players to make sure that they win the MTN8 semi-final against Bloemfontein Celtic and qualify for the final.

Chiefs are hosting Celtic in the MTN8 semi-final second leg encounter at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night, after the first leg two weeks ago ended 1-1.

While Khune knows a goalless draw will be enough for Chiefs to qualify, he says the team are looking to score goals and win.

"Yes we played a draw in the first game but that won't happen today," Khune told Sport24

“Today it's all up to us as players to make sure that we have to come up with a great result. 

Khune said he knows how dangerous Celtic can be, and he expects them to attack the Amakhosi because they have to score if they are to beat Chiefs to the final.

“We know that Celtic won't just sit back and not attack,” Khune continued.

“Because for them a draw is not enough, and they will also want to attack us. 

“But we have to attack them more, and make sure we score as early as we can in the game.  

“We saw how they played in the first leg which means they can do the same even today. 

“But as I have said it's all up to us.”

Chiefs take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the second leg on Saturday, August 29 at the FNB Stadium.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
