Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela has written off suggestions that Tuesday's PSL match against Mpumalanga Black Aces is as good as won.

Amakhosi overcame the same opponents in the quarter-final of the Telkom Knockout competition with a 2-1 win on Saturday and the sides will face off again, this time in the league, in midweek.

Komphela admitted that he would like the game on Tuesday to go similarly to this weekend's match, in which goals from Camaldine Abraw and Erick Mathoho helped them advance to the semi-final.

"I hope the game will be a repeat of today [Saturday]," Komphela told the club's website.

"It will be another tough game. But that's how it is. We have accepted as a team that every match is like a cup final."

He revealed he would be reviewing the match tapes from the TKO clash to help prepare for the Premiership fixture, but added his biggest concern was managing any signs of overconfidence in the squad.

"I will look at the notes and tapes to get feedback as part of preparing for Tuesday's encounter," he said.

"Tuesday will be a different ball game. We will go to the match high on confidence. We will avoid complacency."
