Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane says his main objective is to grind out positive results as they prepare for the resumption of the DStv Premiership season.

The Glamour Boys went into the international break with a positive result after they edged out arch-rivals Orlando Pirates 1-0 through a decisive goal from Yusuf Maart at the Orlando Stadium on October 29.

Amakhosi are now placed fourth on the league standings – level on 21 points with third placed SuperSport United after 13 matches played.

They will now resume their campaign when they take on Golden Arrows in their next DStv Premiership clash at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on December 31.

“We are coming back from a long recess, an unusual one at this time of the season. So, it will be a case of adaptation and a change of mindset from our players,” Zwane told his club’s official website.

“We just want to continue where we left off in terms of the performance, with the hope that we still have the same rhythm, as we are starting to get to know each other very well. The chemistry is also getting better, as is the approach of the players, which has also been key.

“We were building up good momentum and we now have to start afresh. What is key right now is to try and grind out the results, in terms of getting to go back to how we played our last game. It’s not going to be easy.

“We played quite a few games behind closed doors and we did quite well, that might have helped. But it is only until you start playing official games, that’s when you see where you are, where you need to make changes and improve.

“Those games are practice matches, because the atmosphere is not the same as at the stadiums. What will be important now is how the players will respond when the crowds are cheering them on… and sometimes when things are not going our way, when they will be a little bit against us, which is something we understand,” Zwane concluded.
