JOHANNESBURG: Chiefs’ journey to the cup’s last 8 comes down to victories over Golden Arrows and Stellenbosch FC

Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro says his team should not go into Saturday’s Nedbank Cup last 8 encounter against Baroka FC with complacency as it could come back to bite them.

Amakhosi will host Baroka in Port Elizabeth knowing that an exit from the competition could confirm that they will finish yet another season without any silverware. The striker who scored his first goal for Chiefs against the same team he will play against on Saturday believes Chiefs will have to put up a fight if they want to see it through.

“We need to fight if we want to reach the semi-finals. We need to be ready from the moment that the referee blows the whistle to kick-off the game. We want to score early. Baroka always approach their games with a do-or-die attitude. They have nothing to loose and everything to gain.”

“They can’t be underestimated. This means that we must be focused from the start and take care of business with a sound game plan and a determination to win. We need to look forward as well. The Nedbank Cup is an opportunity to win a trophy this season,” said Castro on the club’s website.

Chiefs’ journey to the cup’s last 8 comes down to victories over Golden Arrows and Stellenbosch FC.  Their match against Baroka will take place on Saturday night at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, kick off at 20h15.
