Kaizer Chiefs defender Zitha Kwinika has predicted a tough battle when they face SuperSport United in a DSTV Premiership encounter at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday.
Kwinika, who has been utilised at fullback by new Amakhosi coach Molefi Ntseki in the early stages of this campaign, Kwinika has lebelled the game against Matsatsantsa as a battle.
“Playing against SuperSport United is a battle. They are often not pretty games. You can see their form so we know it’s going to be difficult. They are experienced and well organised, so we are preparing for that,” Kwinika told the club’s official website, adding “As a team, we are gaining momentum and are looking to keep it going in the right direction,” he says, “We are disappointed to only draw against Royal AM but Lady Luck wasn’t on our side. Against SuperSport we are going to have to bury our chances to get a good result.”
On his fitness level ahead of the fixture, he said: “I’m in good shape and happy to be getting minutes, which is boosting me in terms of confidence, fitness, and readiness, I have actually played the majority of my PSL games at right back, probably for two seasons, so I am familiar with that position but I think it’s good to be adaptable and play a few positions, which is an advantage to being able to help the team when required.”
Kwinika further called for patience from the Amakhosi faithful insisting they will be rewarded soon by saying: “We can always do better and we are working towards improving all the time. We are building and soon the results will come. We just want to make our supporters happy. As a group now, we know what is at stake. We owe it to ourselves and to the fans, as well as the Chairman and team management to make the improvements we need in order to be successful.”
The match kicks off at 19:30 on Wednesday, 20 September at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
