Kaizer Chiefs defender Kgotso Moleko has urged his side not to underestimate struggling side Maritzburg United at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
The Glamour Boys currently occupy seventh place in the league standings with 32 points from 22 games played so far this season.
Meanwhile, the Team of Choice are rooted to the bottom of the table, having only accumulated 17 points after 22 matches.
‘We need to be on the front foot from the first whistle,’ Moleko told his club’s official website.
‘It won’t be an easy game because they are fighting for their lives. They will be gunning for the win, but we will have to show them that we want it more.
Prior to Ernst Middendorp’s appointment, Moleko has managed to feature only 22 times in all competitions, having last made a start against Free State Stars in September 2018.
Since then, the Amakhosi defender has become a regular starter in the Chiefs lineup.
‘It was tough, but coach Ernst came in and uplifted my performances,’ he added.
‘It will be difficult for us to catch the teams above us on the log, but anything can happen in the eight games still left to play. We’re still in it mathematically, and for now our focus is on the Maritzburg United and SuperSport United matches before the Fifa break.’
Kaizer Chiefs are set to welcome Maritzburg United to the FNB Stadium when the two sides meet in the Absa Premiership on Saturday, with kick-off set for 6pm.
