Cape Town -
Kaizer Chiefs defender Njabulo Blom has paid tribute to his team-mates to
guiding him through a high-pressure tie with Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus
Versfeld on Sunday.
only being 19-years-old, he played with a maturity beyond his years as he made
two goal-saving interventions to help Chiefs to a crucial 2-0 victory and give
them a major boost in the title race.
versatile defender now has another stern challenge with the upcoming Soweto
derby on Saturday as Amakhosi take on Orlando Pirates.
Chiefs’ official website about that encounter, 'Stoppa' explained: "The game
against Arrows was the most challenging for me because it was my first
nervous, but the other guys helped me out and got me to settle in well. It was
the kind of game which could have made me or broke me.
God my performance was good. We won and it has motivated me and helped me
believe in my abilities."
derby clash starts at 15:00.
