Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker says they will approach their last two Premier Soccer League (PSL) matches with ‘fire in our eyes’.
The Glamour Boys are set to welcome Chippa United to the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday before ending their campaign against Baroka at the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday.
Amakhosi currently sit at the top of the league standings with 53 points from 28 matches played, level on points with second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns but with a superior goal difference.
However, Parker is determined to finish the season on a high and has emphasised the magnitude of their remaining ‘do-or-die’ matches in the Absa Premiership.
‘Our preparations have been more mental than the physical [part] itself‚’ Parker told Kaizer Chiefs media.
‘The preparations have been going well in terms of us recouping‚ rejuvenating, resting and also tuning the mind into a more positive approach to the next match.
‘We are happy that everyone is on the same page. Everyone is looking forward to win‚ that’s what is the most important thing to do and so far, so good. We will see what happens on the field of play against Chippa when we give 120%.
‘We are well aware here in camp that the expectations are high, the pressure is high and that everyone who’s got their whole heart and are true supporters who support this team want us to deliver the title.
‘And that’s the goal, that’s the focus for our 50-year celebration. Past players have also left a legacy for us to carry on with. As players we have come together, we have been praying, we have been connecting energetically among ourselves in terms of how we are going to approach these two matches‚ which is a war I would say, and our lives depend on it. For our family as players and technical staff and our families at home and supporters.
‘It’s a do-or-die moment and it’s good to see that we have made that agreement, we have made that pledge that we are definitely going out there with fire in our eyes‚ fighting for what we deserve‚ which is the title.’
