Chiefs ready for Telkom Knockout clash against Martizburg

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Siphiwe Tshabalala has said that his team’s mood was great after the great start to their ABSA Premiership season.

The Amakhosi have won all seven of their Premiership fixtures this season and had also beat arch-rivals Orlando Pirates at the MTN8 Finals which occurred on September 12th.

Chief’s manager, Stuart Baxter, has struggled through the Premiership, as at times his team was missing a few key players. However, their winning streak has kept their confidence high.

They have also won the first Q-Innovation quarter trophy of the 2014/15 season; this is their fourth quarterly award.

"It has been a great start to the season with the team winning seven matches in a row. We got the Innovation Q1 and that on top of the MTN 8 trophy has been a bright start.”

“Regardless of the injuries in the team we have recuperated and it can only get better," Tshabalala said on his official website.

"The spirit is high at camp and the players look lively and confident. I guess that is how any player would feel when all is going right for the team."

Glamour Boys will next be facing Martizburg United for their first round of the Telkom Knockout clash, which will be played in the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Tshabalala has said that this will be an interesting match, as the Chiefs beat Martizburg 1-0 last weekend in their ABSA Premiership game.

"Coming up is the Telkom Knockout and we are featured against Maritzburg United who we just played against in the league. It will not be an easy match because we all know that the league is different from a cup competition," he added.

"They are a strong team and will always pose a threat. We are prepared and shall see who wants it the most on the day."
