Kaizer Chiefs defender Zitha Kwinika has called upon his teammates to start being consistent in their performances.
Amakhosi always blow hot and cold with a mix of different results. In the previous five league matches, the Soweto giants have two victories and three defeats in a pattern of LWLWL.
The former Stellenbosch FC captain believes that good results will start coming their way once the team becomes consistent in their performances. According to him, stability will be restored.
“We won the previous game [against Stellenbosch in the MTN8], so I think it’s a matter of consistency.
Maybe if we get to win four games in a row, the confidence will grow because we win one, lose one every time we bounce back,” Kwinika told the media.
“Now it’s a matter of getting stability to continue winning and sustain the performances. If we get that balance as a whole team, it will make things easier for the team going forward.”
“Never mind who is playing and who is not playing. I think that’s not important at this point.
It’s just about to gel as a team, even if the other one is not there for you not to even notice. I think it’s important.
Heading into a tough match against AmaZulu on Saturday, Kwinika says the focus is on three points, not the MTN8 semi-final.
“We have a game against them [AmaZulu] on Saturday, which is the most important game. It will be difficult, and it will be hard.”
League games and cup games are two different games. Maybe the game we are going to play on the weekend can give us an idea of what to expect [in the MTN8],” he added.
Victory on either side on Saturday will break the winless streak between the two teams.
Last season they faced each other twice; both matches ended in one all draw.
