Kaizer Chiefs attacker Khama Billiat has urged his side to remain humble and focused on “getting the basics right” to ensure they maintain their current momentum in the DStv Premiership.
The Zimbabwean was in swell form this past weekend, bagging a brace to help Amakhosi secure a 3-1 victory over Soweto rivals Swallows FC at the Dobsonville Stadium.
Billiat has now been involved in nine goals in 12 DStv Premiership appearances, scoring four goals and claiming five assists after rekindling his partnership with Keagan Dolly.
The 31-year-old will bring up a century of appearances for Chiefs when they welcome Cape Town City to the FNB Stadium on Saturday evening, with Billiat hoping to mark his milestone appearance with a goal.
“We are professional enough. We used to celebrate when we were young, right? Now, we celebrate in a professional way. We don’t need to be out there celebrating like the league is finished. We have to stay focused,” Billiat told his club’s official website.
“I want to thank God for this opportunity and for keeping us strong. You know we are living in a difficult time right now. We pray to God that he keeps us strong and that we have this strong team.
“We have got a strong squad and I always trust my boys, whether I play or don’t play we are positive about the result and we work hard like we always do. I am happy for the team and I am happy that we keep getting stronger and stronger. We understand each other and the importance of collecting the maximum points that we needed.
“It’s not easy, but we are not looking at the table.
“Right now, we want to focus on the things that the coaches want us to do and focus on getting the basics right, which will always help us get the good results and performances and then we will look at the table afterwards. We will stay focused and humble and we keep on working hard for the team.”
