Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala believes a win against SuperSport United will reignite Amakhosi’s chances of challenging for the league title.

Amakhosi, who are five points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, are set to meet at Mbombela Stadium tonight at 6pm.

“We are ready for them (SuperSport United),” Tshabalala told the club’s website.

“We don’t dwell on the past results. What’s important is to focus on the next match. I am confident and looking at the attitude in the dressing room, it is positive.

“It is crunch time of the league. Every team is gunning for something. Our mission is still intact, and that’s to clinch the league title.

“There is a lot at stake. We have a badge to represent.

“We are representing the brand and the aspirations of the supporters. It is a privilege as well as a huge responsibility that we are carrying and we must uphold that by showing hunger on the pitch. I am optimistic we are going to win this one.”

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune faces a late fitness test, while defenders Kgotso Moleko (calf) and Sibusiso Khumalo (thigh muscle strain) have been ruled out through injuries.
