Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker insists their MTN8 final defeat will not play on their minds when they walk out against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Amakhosi relinquished their Wafa Wafa crown after going down to Ajax Cape Town in the final earlier this season, but have a chance at redemption as they face the Brazilians for Telkom Knockout glory this week.

And, speaking ahead of the Moses Mabhida Stadium encounter, Parker said: "It's another cup final in the space of three months.

"We've put the MTN8 behind us and we bounced back strong and now we are in the Final of the Telkom Knockout Cup.

"Definitely this time around we cannot let it slip through our hands; we want it more than anybody else."

Kick-off is on Wednesday, December 16 at 18:00.
