Sowetan - - Dipapadi - By Tiyani wa ka Mabasa

Khama Bil­liat is lov­ing ev­ery mo­ment of his stay at Kaizer Chiefs since join­ing the club on a three­year deal in June.

And with six goals and four as­sists in 16 matches for Amakhosi, the Zim­bab­wean for­ward has ev­ery rea­son to smile.

“I feel very good and this is the right place I al­ways wanted to be. It’s a good club for me to stay fo­cused, achieve and work with good play­ers,” said Bil­liat fol­low­ing their 1-0 win over Black Leop­ards at FNB Sta­dium in mid­week.

Bil­liat’s coun­try­man Wil­lard Kat­sande was on the score­sheet to guide Chiefs to vic­tory.

“Most im­por­tantly, Kaizer Chiefs, ev­ery­one wants to beat them and it brings the best out of the team.

“It keeps us on our toes and it makes you be bet­ter ev­ery day, so I’ve been lov­ing it.”

Bil­liat, mean­while, to­gether with his team­mates, will have to con­tend with an­other game be­hind closed doors when they host Chippa United at Moses Mab­hida Sta­dium to­mor­row (6pm).

This is part of Chiefs’s pun­ish­ment fol­low­ing the un­savoury scenes at the Dur­ban venue ear­lier this year.

Bil­liat ad­mit­ted that the last time they played with­out their 12th when they lost 1-0 to Polok­wane City last month, it was dif­fi­cult men­tally for the play­ers to ad­just.

“I don’t think we want go through that again.

“But we need to grind [out] a re­sult to make our sup­port­ers happy, be­cause it’s not easy for them, es­pe­cially in Dur­ban.”
