According to Tshabalala’s official website, the 30-year-old believes that Saturday, November 22nd encounter is as big as it gets but nothing changes as far as routines go.

“It is a big one on Saturday,” said Shabba.

“It will not be an easy match to play for both teams but for us it is a job that we have to complete successfully.

Chiefs and Sundowns have locked horns 24 times since 2004, with Amakhosi having won on eleven occasions and sharing the spoils five times.

Kaizer Chiefs are still yet to be defeated in the PSL having won nine of their 10 games with the other being drawn.

Tshabalala confesses that Chiefs would do everything in their power to continue to build on their 11 point lead on the standings with having a go at Sundowns.

“We have played to the best of our ability this season and we are confident that we can keep doing so.

“All teams are the same and that includes Sundowns. We want to keep winning and we will do just that on Saturday,” added Shabba.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
