Davids believes playing Amakhosi always gets the best out of his
players and he does not have to do a lot to motivate them ahead of the
Friday clash set for the Harry Gwala Stadium.
The team of Choice mentor believes the timing is good for them to
come against the Soweto giants as they have also struggled to hit the
ground running under Giovanni Solinas.
Maritzburg are winless from their two opening matches and
were also eliminated from the MTN8 by Cape Town City on Sunday.
"I think the best thing that can happen now is to play against Chiefs," Davids told the SABC.
"I do not need to motivate the players. I want them to be brave, we
are a good team, and they know it. We are a fantastic team; they just
have to believe it.
"We just have to get a few things right and we will definitely be ready for them.
"Teams are sitting back; teams are giving us the respect. We have to
acknowledge that and we have to realise that after last season's
"We have to find solutions and cannot complain that they are putting a defensive structure in because all teams plan."
