Kaizer Chiefs defender Dillan Solomons has assured Amakhosi fans that the players are fully determined to win their match against Cape Town City on Saturday, having failed to win in the corresponding fixture in Cape Town earlier in the season.
“We are in good spirits this week. We’re looking forward to the game,” he said. ”Even though it’s the last game of the season, people might think our minds are not here and we’re thinking about holidays, but this is a very important game for us. We owe them (Cape Town City) one. When we went to Cape Town, we didn’t get the result we wanted. Now they are coming to us so we have to kill them off this weekend.
“We have to make FNB (stadium) a fortress. When teams come there, they have to be scared, so hopefully we can put some fear into Cape Town City on Saturday and then get the win.”
Solomons, who is familiar with many of the opponents he will face, added that the key to victory lies with his team’s ability to convert the numerous chances they create into goals.
“I know a lot of their players,” he notes, “I have played with some of them and I have seen others play. They are a very good possession-based team. They like to keep the ball and offensively, they are very good. We will have to be on our toes for that and be defensively strong and, when we get our opportunities to score, we have to take them. I think that’s one of our biggest issues. We create so many opportunities but haven’t been taking them so, hopefully, this weekend we can get it right and score some goals.”
He says rewarding the fans for their loyalty is a massive motivation for them to bring success back to Kaizer Chiefs: “They have been with us since day one and have been very supportive of me, personally, and the Club. I know they love the Club so much and, hopefully, we can give them something next season. But before that, we want to do it this weekend and give them something to look forward to when we start again,” he concludes.
