Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs in-form striker Ryan Moon says he's motivated to keep scoring goals and will try his best to not get distracted by the attention he receives for his good performances.

The 21-year-old has banged in four goals in his last five matches in all competitions and is now tied as Chiefs' leading scorer along with veteran attacking midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala. 

Moon is becoming an increasingly important component of Amakhosi's attack and should feature against Cape Town City in Saturday evening's crucial Absa Premiership clash at FNB Stadium. 

He said: "The moment you score you want to get that feeling all the time, but I mustn't put too much pressure on myself. I take it one game at the time. It's great to score, but in the end it's all about the team. 

"Suddenly everybody wants to be your friend, (so) it's therefore crucial to choose your friends carefully and stay focused. 

"It's an important game...They are a tough side. It's crucial that we keep the momentum after last week’s win. If we get the three points, we will continue to be in the mix to win the league title."

Kick-off is at 20:15.
