Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believes good fortune has
not been on his team's side so far this season, though he hopes for
better luck against Maritzburg United.
The Glamour Boys face the Team of Choice at the Harry Gwala Stadium
on Wednesday, after dropping points against Bidvest Wits in their
previous Premiership clash due to a last minute equaliser.
As such, Komphela is hopeful his team can overcome the hoodoo when
Chiefs face the club he formerly coached in 2014/15. The 50-year-old
told the club's official website, "Of course, we have our DNA, but we
also analyse the opponents to see what they bring to the match.
"I have worked at Maritzburg and they might have changed their
personnel here and there, but they basically remain the same team. They
are very difficult to beat, especially at Harry Gwala.
"I know the anticipation and the excitement ahead of a Chiefs visit
there. It is a big event and the match will be played at high tempo.
"The confidence has always been there. We just needed to brush aside
the anxiety. We started eagerly, wanting to begin the season on a high,
but lady luck deserted us. I am sure we have now turned the corner."
