Kaizer Chiefs defender Zitha Kwinika is confident they are still within reach of the DStv Premiership leading pack and issued a message to the club’s supporters.

Chiefs currently occupy 14th spot on the league table, with eight points from their opening seven matches – a sight that has many supporters in anguish and a state of panic.

With pressure mounting on Amakhosi to quickly increase their tally of two victories, Kwinika understands the situation and has promised they will soon do what is required and expected of them.

“We understand where they are and it pains us. You know, when you meet someone telling you, ‘I can’t sleep, whatever you are doing, I’m not happy,’ it pains you because we know we are part of that journey,” Kwinika told the club’s website.

“But I can promise the supporters that we understand where we are and understand what we need to do.

This is our work. We are here to work, also for our families and obviously to represent the brand, because the badge is the main thing and we understand how big the badge is.

“This is not the true reflection of the log. Two wins and we’ll be on top. I think other teams have played eight games and while games in hand are not points, if we win those games we’re back on top where we belong and we promise them, this season we will make them smile.”

Chiefs face SuperSport United at FNB Stadium on Saturday before domestic action takes a recess for the upcoming FIFA International week.
