Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro insists that his team-mates are working hard behind the scenes in order to edge their rivals to the Absa Premiership title.
Amakhosi beat Highlands Park 3-0 on Wednesday evening in front of thousands of spectators as access to the FNB Stadium was for free as the club celebrated their 50th birthday.
Eric Mathoho opened up the scoring for the Glamour Boys before Castro bagged a brace to ensure Chiefs remain on top of the log with a six-point lead over current champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
"Today the team showed character, we’re scoring goals tonight, we're happy because the supporters came in numbers to see our team," Castro said in post-match interview on SuperSport TV.
"We all know what it means 50 years for Kaizer Chiefs in the history of South African soccer.
"I think we've got experienced players in the team to manage this kind of pressure. We showed today that we play good football and we're happy.
"We all know, and we all want to finish in a good shape, we all want to be a champ so we're working hard, we all know, so step by step we'll get it."
Chiefs are back in action on Sunday as they welcome Cape Town City to FNB Stadium.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
