Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says their clash against Mamelodi Sundowns will not be about vengeance.

Chiefs were humbled the last time they met Sundowns after the 3-1 thrashing in the Telkom Knockout final.

Meanwhile, Komphela's charges ended an eight-game winless streak with a 2-1 win over the University of Pretoria. 

"We are not people full of vengeance...we seek no vengeance. We are going there to perform our duties," said Komphela as quoted by KickOff

"We acknowledge that we missed two penalties in the Final, we created four one-on-one chances...this has been our story this season. So we will go to Pretoria and want to take every chance we get, also knowing Sundowns might create four or five chances and out of those they will take three.

"They are not very generous when it comes to missing chances and we have to make sure that we also take our own chances."

Kick-off is at 20:15 on Saturday, April 30.
