Katsande: We are going to build on this performance

Cape Town - Willard Katsande wants Kaizer Chiefs to build on their dramatic 3-2 victory over Polokwane City, when they face Golden Arrows at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday.

Amakhosi were starring at their ninth consecutive game without a win, before the Zimbabwe international's stunning long-range effort in stoppage-time, making up for his earlier mistake, where he conceded a first-half penalty.

His blushes were spared by Brilliant Khuzwayo, when the second-choice stopper saved the subsequent spot-kick from Rodney Ramagalela, but the former Sundowns striker managed to find the net moments later.

Bernard Parker headed Chiefs level, before new signing Joseph Molangoane grabbed his first for the club to turn the game on its head.

A Puleng Tlolane strike eight minutes from time looked to have extended Chiefs' winless streak, though, before the midfielder stepped up with the winner - which the former Ajax Cape Town midfielder hopes sparks new life into the Glamour Boys.

"Obviously I took the blame for the penalty because I think it was a late challenge, and the referee knows better in terms of the rules," he said after the game.

"As a senior, experienced player I had to pick up my socks and try to work for the team, because I know football is a game of mistakes. 

"I mean if you see players overseas like Sergio Ramos, sometimes he does the same and concedes such penalties and at the end of it he moves forward and tries to help the team win the match.

"Obviously we wanted this win to boost our confidence because if you could see in previous games, unfortunately the results were not coming. 

"But we managed to create a number of chances but couldn't win matches. I think we are going to build on this performance going forward."
