Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs forward Bernard Parker admits that Amakhosi supporters can anticipate the same performance they witnessed against Orlando Pirates in the upcoming season.

The Phefeni Glamour Boys registered their second win of the off-season spectacle with a 2-0 victory over the Buccaneers at the FNB stadium on Saturday in the Carling Black Label Champions Cup.

Eric Mathoho and Lewis Macha were on target for the Naturena side on the day and Parker insisted that his team-mates will be all-out to make amends of last season when the upcoming campaign kicks-off in three weeks-time.

“Our supporters must expect more of what they saw on Saturday,” insisted Parker.

“This coming season we’ll be all out to make them proud and hopefully we’ll improve from last season.

“We are going to try our best to bring the glory days back to Kaizer Chiefs and we can’t do it without them.”

Chiefs will commence their 2016/17 Absa Premiership campaign against Bidvest Wits away from home, on August 23 before travelling to the Mother City to square-off against Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-finals.
