Cape Town Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala insists the side play with a system that is not dependant on an individuals, but rather on a team structure that is consistent.

Amakhosi are set to face Ajax Cape Town in the MTN8 final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday, where Tshabalala will be looking to lift his first title as captain in coach Steve Komphela's maiden season.

"It's true the team may change on Saturday but the principle and mandate of the team is the same. We want to win and defend the trophy," Tshabalala told Soccer Laduma.

"It's obviously not going to be easy on Saturday because Ajax are a great team and we respect them.

"But for us we are not focusing on Ajax but on what we can do as a team no matter who plays on the day."
