Chiefs won’t underestimate Pirates
Kaizer Chiefs have said that they will not underestimate Orlando Pirates, when they clash in the ABSA Premier Soccer League (PSL) Derby at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
After the death of Buccaneers captain, Senzo Meyiwa and the resignation of coach, Vladimir Vermezovic, Pirates have faltered, going down 2-1 against Maritzburg United on Wednesday.
Assistant coach, Eric Tinkler, who has taken over as head coach, said that he will try and close the 15 point gap between the Buccaneers and Chiefs. Pirates are currently sitting eighth on the table with 18 points and the Amakhosi are on top of the log due to their unbeaten run, with 33 points.
Chiefs’ central defender and captain, Tefu Mashamaite, has said that they will be wary of their arch rivals on Saturday.
“The approach is to go there with respect and not to read too much into their situation, we need to be very careful,” he said.
“We have to keep reminding each other about not becoming complacent because it’s going to be easy to say we beat Wits and they lost to Maritzburg United.
“They also lost the coach and say okay, let’s chill because we’ll give them a whipping – that’s not going to be the case. We have to simply focus on the game itself.”
