Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs marksman Bernard Parker believes every player on the pitch raises their game for the Soweto Derby.
Amakhosi face arch rivals Pirates in one of the biggest matches in the Premiership season at the FNB Stadium on Saturday and Parker is expecting a typically intense encounter.
"You don't want to make mistakes in such games and I'm a die-hard player for Kaizer Chiefs so if things don't go my way I work very hard.
"I make sure I work on the defensive part and if I step wrong I have to get penalised, but I think that's just the name of the game," Parker told KickOff.
"That's the danger that we face. This can be the game for Orlando Pirates to turn things around.
"Every supporter who is associated with us expects a win and nothing else and we are looking forward to win this weekend so when we go to the Telkom Knockout the next weekend the bragging rights would be on our side.
"Mentally, it would favour us going into the next Derby. I'm definitely confident that it's gonna be an entertaining game and I pray and hope that we get goals."
