Cape Town - Bernard Parker has called on his fellow Kaizer Chiefs players to show resilience, claiming this is necessary for CAF Confederation Cup qualification. 

Chiefs have endured a tumultuous few weeks, with coach Steve Komphela stepping down following their Nedbank Cup semi-final loss to Free State Stars. However, they are still in the hunt for third place in the league. 

“We are on a mission to finish third as that will give us a position in the CAF Confederation Cup,” Parker said, according to Kaizer Chiefs' official website. 

“We have been knocked hard. We need to reset ourselves mentally. It’s a big challenge as a footballer. We have to be mentally strong and stick together.” 

“We want to win the final two matches of the season because we want to finish in a good frame of mind.” 

Amakhosi will play Maritzburg United, who currently lead them by one point in the race for third, today at 15:00.
