Cape Town - SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobler is wary of facing a wounded Kaizer Chiefs outfit in their next match at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday.

LIVE scoring and interactive commentary on the Absa Premiership clash between Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United.

Matsatsantsa have been in fine form in recent weeks and are currently on a 10-game unbeaten streak.

Coach Stuart Baxter has been able to get the best out of his players with four wins, four draws and one loss in the Premiership.

Chiefs on the other hand are winless in their last five games, with the team still reeling from their 2-1 loss against rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.

"I think it's going to be tough and Chiefs are coming from a loss. Yeah, I mean Chiefs are a good team and they will always be a good team but I think there will be a lot of pressure on them in that game," Grobler told KickOff.

"But at the same time we are also under pressure because after this performance we are going to expect better from ourselves. I think it's going to be a good game and it's going to be a tough game.

"I must say I'm feeling really good and it has been a long time since I have enjoyed my game as much as I am now.

"And I'm also happy to be back in the national mix. But it is difficult to talk about my form and my performances after the performance we just had (against Baroka).

"So we just need to put that behind us and learn from the second-half performance and build on from it."

Meanwhile, Chiefs coach Baxter has braced his team for two tough fixtures against the Soweto giants adding that his team would have to go on the offensive to get the maximum reward out of both games.

Baxter's men face Orlando Pirates in a Telkom Knockout semi-final on Saturday after tonight's fixture against Chiefs in a PSL clash.

Kick off is at 19:30.
