Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele feels there is still a lot to come from Khama Billiat and Leonardo Castro at Amakhosi.

The two players were instrumental for the Glamour Boys over the weekend and each scored a goal in the 2-2 draw against SuperSport United in the MTN8 semi-final first leg tie.

Mphahlele and the attacking duo have all reunited at Naturena after a successful spell playing for Mamelodi Sundowns.

The defender admitted that Amakhosi are still a work in progress, but they are always guaranteed goals as long as the two players are in the field of play.

"Scoring gives us big confidence, these guys (Castro and Billiat) are top players. You're guaranteed that you will get goals when they are on the pitch," Mphahlele told MTN8 TV.

"We have to work together with them and try to help them, especially us as the defence. We have to try and keep the zero (in the scoreline), and we know they will score.

"We know Khama is going to get something; Castro is going to get something, but it's a work in process. We have a new man in charge, we have to keep working and fix it, but the journey (to the MTN8 final) continues."
