Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala admits that it gets harder by game to defend their undefeated Absa Premiership streak.

Speaking on his official website, Shabba reveals that the pressure is mounting but they are out to continue their quest on staying undefeated.

“That is the difficult part,” said Tshabalala.

“The more you win games, the harder it gets for us to firstly keep the record going and to keep performing.

“There is a lot of pressure but we do our best to deliver. The nice part is that it also makes it difficult for other teams to try and catch up.”

Tshabalala opened the scoring six minutes into the second half against Orlando Pirates with cool finish. The midfielder latched onto a Bernard Parker pin-point cross to net his first league goal of the season.

“Well it is great that he has returned and is playing good football.

“The assist and the goal is all for the team. It does not really count much who supplies or scores the goal.

“The team plays and moves as a unit, it was because of all the hard work the players did that we won that match and all other matches before the derby.”
