Maritzburg United coach Ernst Middendorp expects Kaizer Chiefs to overcome their poor run of form.

Amakhosi have struggled in the DStv Premiership this season and currently occupy 14th place on the league standings with just one win from their opening nine games.

They have, however, secured their place in the Group Stages of the CAF Champions League.

Chiefs last lost 2-0 to Maritzburg but Middendorp says his former team will endure.

He was reported by FARPost as saying: "I know the Chiefs players, we had a fantastic time over two years ending up with the qualification for the Caf Champions League and thanks God they qualified for the group stage.

"From my side, compliments to the team, to each and everybody who was involved. There is nothing to do, I am a little bit frustrated to see them at this moment running a certain journey.

"But I know they will turn it around and come in the right direction and take confidence out of the qualification in the group (Champions League)."
