Kaizer Chiefs striker Katlego Mphela is expecting a tricky encounter when Amakhosi take on National First Division side Black Leopards in a Nedbank Cup clash at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

“Black Leopards are always tricky. At the time, they didn’t look too concerned at scoring themselves. However, this year they are doing well in the First Division and they have in Zeca Marques an experienced coach. Leopards haven’t lost a game this year,” Mphela told the official Chiefs website.

“Every Cup match is important. We take it game by game – we soldier on, we fight. We can still win the treble this season. As a team, that’s our target.”

Mphela, who has scored two goals for Chiefs this season, both coming in cup games, is hoping to add his name into the score-sheet again in the Leopards clash.

“I try to help the team play good football. As the No 9, I have to link up with the midfield and help create chances for my team-mates. The way I play now has taken away some of the pressure on Bernard Parker. I am not worried about scoring myself. My job is to work for the team.”

The game will start at 5.30pm.
