Cape Town - Hendrick Ekstein is positive Kaizer Chiefs have taken a giant step towards ending their three year drought for a major trophy.
Chiefs edged Baroka FC 1-0 on Saturday to reach the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup, where they have since been drawn against Free State Stars.
Ekstein, who was among Amakhosi's best players on the day, is adamant they can go all the way and clinch their first trophy under the mentorship of Steve Komphela.
The 27-year old’s fine display on Saturday won him the Man of the Match accolade.
Ekstein told Supersport: "I think we owe it to the fans. We have to do well for the team and our supporters.
"It has been two seasons without winning anything so this one is our chance. Yes, we will go all the way to the final and we are going to win this cup."
The midfielder also said he was happy to bag the Man of the Match award in the victory over Bakgaga, saying he is happy to have helped his team get closer to the final.
He added: "Yes, I will get better and I think I have two or three goals this season if not mistaken and I don’t have an assist, but I’m happy with the support I got from my team-mates, the legends of the team and the coach, who are helping me throughout."
