Cape Town - Maritzburg United midfielder Deolin Mekoa believes Kaizer Chiefs were fortunate to get the better of them when the sides clashed last month.

Amakhosi beat the Team of Choice 2-0 in the Absa Premiership, but Mekoa feels United could easily have salvaged at least a point.

Maritzburg now have another shot at the Soweto giants, as they will lock horns in the Telkom Knockout this weekend, and Mekoa is determined to avenge the previous result.

"I was really waiting to draw against Kaizer Chiefs because in the league it was something else. So with this game we just want to go out there and show them that we are capable of winning against them," the Under-23 international told KickOff.

"We didn't deserve to lose that game (league match) because the way we started off that game. I mean 20 minutes into the game we were dominating. after our goals were disallowed that is when everything just went down. So they owe us.

"We give our all because when we talk we always have some targets. What we really target are the tournaments or cup games while in the league we challenge for a spot in the top 8 place. It is possible we can go all the way."
