Kaizer Chiefs forward, Khama Billiat has warned that their Nedbank Cup semi-final opponents, Chippa United are a dangerous side and Amakhosi will have to bring their A-game to make it through to the final.
Amakhosi will meet the Chilli Boys at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Saturday night.
“They are a very good team,” said Billiat on Wednesday morning. “They know how to keep the ball and are good on a counter attack. They have good individual players who can turn things around at any time,” he added.
The nimble footed Zimbabwean player has urged his teammates to show the same hunger that saw them easily put aside a fancied Cape Town City in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
“I just feel it is one of the games that we have to go into wanting it more than them – it’s not going to be easy. But I believe in the team we have and if we are on top of our game we can get something out of it,” said Billiat.
Chiefs have improved markedly since Middendorp took over in December but the results have not been favourable and Billiat believes that if they could create better chances and improve their conversion ratio, things would definitely be better.
“As strikers we haven’t been scoring as much as we would have wanted. We are trying to work on our combinations so we can create more chances and score more goals. We are trying to give each other confidence and support one another to make sure everyone given a chance gets on the score sheet.”
