Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala believes his side are still very much in the title race, despite falling eight points behind at the top of the Absa Premiership.
Amakhosi take on Orlando Pirates in the Soweto derby this weekend, needing to bounce back after defeat to Platinum Stars on Sunday.
“Obviously it becomes a worrying factor when we don’t win games,” said Tshabalala.
“But it is part of the journey. There are always obstacles but …. We are focused and we know the significance of the game and we are looking forward to the game. Our focus now is playing Pirates and making sure we get maximum points.
“I believe we are still in it, we have league to defend, we have the Nedbank Cup to play, we have Africa, we have quality team and a quality coach in Steve Komphela.”
“Everyone is working very hard, the coach has a good headache as to who to select for the game. All is well and we are … anticipating a great game of football.”
