Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng
Khune says that Amakhosi have been working especially hard of late to cut out

After a slow start to the season, Amakhosi
have taken off in the past couple of weeks with three successive league wins to
move joint second on the table.
The last three games have seen Chiefs
conceding just once, while scoring eight, the Glamour Boys currently the
league's top scorers.
It's an improved showing at the back that
has made the difference, Khune believes.
"I think it's concentration because at
some stage, hence the coach has already played all the central defenders, there
was that lack of concentration and communication," the goalkeeper was
quoted saying by KickOff website.
"But we realised where we got it all
wrong and why we didn't start well, so we started fixing it at training and now
it's starting to show in matches.
"It is important that we don't drag
each other down when someone makes a mistake, but we have to cover up for him
because we're not doing it for ourselves but for the team," Khune added.
On a personal note, Khune is pleased to be
finding his best form and feels that a recent showing for Bafana in a 0-0 draw
with Libya has boosted his confidence.
"It was a great morale booster
because, before going into that camp, I know a lot of people complained that I
shouldn't be in Bafana, but I've proven time and again that whenever given the
opportunity I will give my all, be it for Chiefs or Bafana," he said.
