Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka is targeting a victory over Kaizer Chiefs after his side defeated Orlando Pirates last week. 

Abafana Bes'thende moved level on points with Chiefs in the Premiership standings after recording a 2-0 victory over Pirates last Wednesday, goals from Kuda Mahachi and Gladwin Shitolo securing the points on the day.

And, after Pirates saw off the challenge of Chiefs in the Soweto derby at the weekend, Letsoaka is aiming to pile further misery on Steve Komphela's men.

"If we win, then we shall say that we successfully conquered Pretoria and Soweto," a confident Letsoaka told Times Live.

"It's going to be a difficult game. Chiefs will come fired up for the game, but the advantage for us is that we did not play at the weekend. So, we will have fresher legs."

Letsoaka also shed some light on the tactical approach his side will employ against Amakhosi, saying they will be looking to put their opponents under sustained pressure.

He added: "Steve will always concentrate on being organised, especially in defence. But we have studied them well and we have seen areas that we can exploit.

"We are going to do a lot of running and put them under pressure. We can get a point, but achieving three points is not entirely impossible.

"Our defending in the victory over Pirates was poor. We need to improve."
