Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane is still adamant that his team can still finish in second spot on the league despite their latest setback.
This comes after Amakhosi threw away a lead to be held to a 1-1 draw by Marumo Gallants at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Chiefs had started the weekend in joint second place with Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United, as the three sides battle it out for the runners-up spot in the league and a berth in next season’s African Champions League.
But while SuperSport beat TS Galaxy on Friday in Pretoria and Pirates were winners away over Chippa united in Gqeberha on Saturday, Chiefs dropped points against Gallants.
“There are five more games to play, there’s a lot to play for. Anything can happen,” said Zwane.
“You know, there’s loads of teams who are fighting to avoid relegation or be in the top eight. So there are no easy games for everyone.
“We could have grabbed the maximum points on this one but now we just have to go back and prepare ourselves for the next one, which is going to be after the cup game.”
Chiefs next face Royal AM in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinal on Sunday and their next league match is at Sekhukhune United in Polokwane on April 23.
“It’s all up to us. We still have to play Super Sport. We can do better, you know, we still do better. But it will also test our character now. From now on going forward,” added Zwane.
