Amakhosi look­ing to Shabba for goals

Sowetan - - Sport - By Tiyani wa ka Mabasa

Kaizer Chiefs look un­stop­pable at the mo­ment but Polok­wane City are con­fi­dent they’ll stop them when they lock horns at Peter Mok­aba Sta­dium tonight.

Chiefs are fourth on the log with 13 points from nine matches while City are a dis­tant 12th with nine points from the same num­ber of matches.

Rise and Shine face an Amakhosi side high in con­fi­dence. Chiefs are play­ing bet­ter now and that has been ev­i­dent in their last few matches, in­clud­ing the 3-0 win over AmaZulu in the last 16 of the Telkom Knock­out at the week­end.

You won­der if City – with the worst de­fence in the league, hav­ing con­ceded – 15 goals – can stop Chiefs.

City de­fender Ndi­vhuwo Ravhuhali, how­ever, told Sowe­tan yes­ter­day that they are up to the chal­lenge.

“I’m ex­pect­ing a win. Chiefs are do­ing well, but we are also do­ing well. We can stop them,” Ravhuhali in­sisted.

“The thing is we’ve been con­ced­ing late goals, but the coaches have been work­ing on that.”

Chiefs will look to mid­field­ers Siphiwe Tsha­bal­ala and Ge­orge Maluleka to con­tinue their fine run, but City also have play­ers who can de­liver on the day, like striker Rod­ney Ra­m­a­galela, who al­ready has six goals this sea­son.

City coach Bernard Molekwa said his main con­cern is that they have not won a league match in their back­yard this sea­son hav­ing lost twice and drawn two matches.

“We haven’t lost in the past three games, but what we are look­ing for is a home win. Maybe it will come against Chiefs,” Molekwa added.
