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 Goal.

"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."
