SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo has warned against complacency as his team prepare to take on a struggling Kaizer Chiefs outfit on Tuesday night.

Amakhosi are down in 12th position in the Premiership after winning only one of their six opening league games of the campaign.

However, Tembo insists the Soweto giants still have dangerous players in their team and should not be underestimated due to their form.

"Those are quality players; national team players... international players that can hurt you any given day," said Tembo, as quoted by the Sowetan.

"As much as they're struggling, they are still a very good team, coached by a very good coach [Gavin Hunt] who's very experienced, who has won trophies. We don't have to look at their current form."

Matsatsantsa come into the game having not played since the 2-1 win over Maritzburg United on 27 November.

"It's been a very long two to three weeks since we played our last game against Maritzburg [which they won 2-1]. We wanted to have continuity but we couldn't because our next opponents were Celtic and they were playing in the CAF Confed Cup, so our game had to be postponed," added Tembo.

"We don't know if the break was a good thing or not, we'll only find that out against Chiefs. The break helped us to get a few players back from injuries. I hope we'll be fresh in [today's] game."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
