Kaizer Chiefs face TS Galaxy on Wednesday in PSL action in a first meeting since the minnows stunned the Glamour Boys to win the 2019 Nedbank Cup.
This clash comes at the best time for Chiefs as they can use those nightmares to exact revenge. It will also help them to rebound from a 3-0 loss to rivals Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 semi-final first leg.
Chiefs’ goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is ready to turn the tide despite what happened in the past and how that might lift their opposition.
“They may still have that momentum‚ but sometimes‚ football isn’t about history‚ and it’s about the present. I’m very sure that they’re going to be well prepared for us‚ especially with what took place on the weekend.
“We’ve learnt from our mistakes and we’ll come out stronger for them‚” he said.
Chiefs face TS Galaxy who are undefeated in the league after beating AmaZulu in week two. In their opener, they drew against Tshakuma Tsha Madzhivandila.
Akpeyi knows his side are under pressure heading into this league fixture.
“We put ourselves on the back foot. We’ve realised where we are going wrong and we’re trying to work on that.
“We know we need to put everything that we have into the next game to make up for the loss against Orlando Pirates. The earlier we get our points‚ the better it will be for us‚” Akpeyi said.
“Every game matters and it’s not just about the league because cup games are also important. It’s important that we do better in each game as compared to the previous game.
“That wasn’t the case in the Pirates game‚ but we hope that we come out a lot better when we play TS Galaxy.”
Suggested bet: Chiefs to win at 1.68
