Kaizer Chiefs striker Khama Billiat believes his team are ready to pick up where they left off before the international break, as they take on Maritzburg United with a spot in the Telkom Knockout final up for grabs.
The Zimbabwean played 180 minutes for his national side in the space of just five days during the break. He starred in the Warriors’ opening two 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia, where he netted twice.
With Chiefs topping the Absa Premiership and now looking for a spot in the TKO final, Billiat is eager to get back into action and pick up where they left off.
‘I am feeling good. We are in a good space and we are just trying to be as professional as we can. We want to come back now and continue from where we left off before the international break,’ commented Billiat on his club’s website.
‘We are expecting a good game, a tough game. They are a hardworking team. If we don’t do the basics correct, they can punish us – they work nicely together.
‘We believe in our team. We are strong and if we go into this game with the right mindset we can win. It’s vital to get to the final, it will boost our confidence individually as well as collectively.
‘It will help us do well in the league and for the rest of the season going forward – that’s why we need to win this game.’
