Johannesburg - With the PSL back in action this weekend, Kaizer Chiefs captain and goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, is focused on guiding the team to success.

According to the soccerladuma.co.za website, Chiefs had six of their squad members, including Khune who captained the national side, in the Bafana Bafana team that defeated the Central African Republic 2-0 on Saturday at the Cape Town Stadium, in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

With the international FIFA break having come and gone, the focus is now back on the domestic scene. Log leaders Chiefs will be looking to continue their dominance of the Absa Premiership on Sunday when they take on Bloemfontein Celtic at the Free State Stadium.

The tricky outing in the Free State will be the first of three games for the Soweto giants in the space of a week and Khune has emphasised the importance of keeping their winning momentum on track.

He told the Siya crew that they will focus on each game at hand, and not get ahead of themselves.

“This is our profession. This is our job and we have to play the same way all the time. We will keep on fighting and look at winning each and every game we play. 

“Obvious, it won't be easy from now on as these are the last games in the league and every team wants the three points. If we are to fight for the league title we have to keep on fighting and win,” the Bafana Bafana captain said.

Chiefs plays Celtic on Sunday, before taking on Martizburg United on Wednesday in Polokwane. The Soweto giants then head out to Durban for their clash with Golden Arrows at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on April 6.
