Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Eric Mathoho has warned his teammates that there is no room for error ahead of the MTN8 quarter-final against SuperSport United.

Amakhosi take on the Tshwane giants on Saturday with the prospect of uncertainty due to a new head coach at the helm of their opposition.

However, Tower is confident Eric Tinkler wouldn't have changed too much of the tactical set-up laid down by his former coach Stuart Baxter.

"It won't be an easy game," he told the club's website.

"We are not sure what to expect because of them having a new coach.

"On the other hand, Tinkler’s soccer philosophy is a bit the same as that of Baxter – they both like the transition game.

"However, whatever approach they will take, we will be ready.”

The heated encounter will kickoff at 20:15 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
