Amakhosi will go to the finals

2017-11-22 06:00

KAIZER Chiefs head coach Steve “Mphathi” Komphela may just have an unexpected chance to prove his enemies and ‘doubting Thomases’ wrong on Saturday.

The Glamour Boys will square up against BidVest Wits (Students) at BidVest Stadium at 3pm in the Telkom Knock-Out semi-finals.

Since the Free State-born and former Bafana Bafana captain Komphela joined the Soweto
giants on June 17, 2015 he has failed to bring any silverware to Naturena.

Many believe the only side capable of upsetting Chiefs is Students and if they win at Milpark grounds the final against Polokwane City or Bloemfontein Celtic will be easier.

Former Chiefs player, currently coaching Amakhosi’s Diski side (reserve team) Arthur “10111” Zwane, says their visit to Milpark will be tough, but they are capable of turning the tables against the home side.

“Playing Wits at home is always tricky and difficult to match them on that small pitch as they know it like the back of their hand. They are very effective in dead-ball situations and counter attacks.

“We are prepared to go in for a kill and match them in all departments.

“We are also capable of turning the tables against the home side.

“If we beat Wits on Saturday the final will be in the bag because I trust the players and believe in them,” said Zwane.

AmaKhosi’s number one supporter Masilo
Machaka told Echo that Komphela will beat
Students on Saturday and win the final to prove his enemies and doubting Thomas’s wrong.

“Mark my words, Komphela will do it his way on Saturday against Wits and win the final in style.”

On Sunday in the second semi-final, Polokwane City go up against Bloemfontein Celtic at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium at 3.30pm.
