Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Rudolph Seale believes it's crucial for the club to beat Highlands Park on Wednesday night.
Chiefs' owners, players, and fans are celebrating the club's 50th
year in existence and Seale hopes the festivities will not be dampered
by another defeat.
Amakhosi were edged out 2-1 by SuperSport United on Saturday, which
saw their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership standings cut down to
four points, and Seale is eager to see them bounce back against the
Lions of the North.
"I hope we don't spoil the party against Highlands Park. I know teams
that are coached by Owen [Da Gama], they are hard running," Seale told
"We really need to avoid a loss, it's our home game and because there
are the title race and ambitions, we need to step up. It's unlike
Kaizer Chiefs to lose two games in a row, we can't drop points."
He added: "Owen is a hard worker and he will not be an easy opponent.
I have worked with him and his teams, I know what he is capable of.
Highlands is one of the teams that will give us a hard time.
"I expect a very good game of football. I think it will be a good
game because we are celebrating 50 years, I hope the boys will rise to
the occasion and avoid another loss."
