Amakhosi won his first league game in almost three months and is considering a follow-up in his next game against Cape Town City
Kaizer chefs defender Daniel Cardoso says they just need to replicate Wednesday’s form against AmaZulu if they want to have a chance to beat The cap in a Premier Soccer League (PSL) face to face at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.
The Chiefs recorded their second win of the season in 10 games when they beat Usuthu 1-0 in Durban to climb four steps in the standings to 10th place.
It was Amakhosi’s first league win since October 2020 and they collected maximum points without key players Khama Billiat and Leonardo Castro.
“If we can put in another fighting spirit like we did against AmaZulu, we should come away victorious. he [beating AmaZulu] energizes us in this game as we play in Cape Town, ”Cardoso told Chiefs media.
“Thinking about our performance against AmaZulu, I thought it was a really big game. For my team, you have seen the fighting spirit we have shown. It was a very important victory to boost morale. It wasn’t the easiest of games, but we continue from here. We needed three points and we certainly got them. We can only progress from there.
“It was a very difficult game. You can see the whole squad were fighting and we’re going to our next game against Cape Town City this weekend. It’s another tough game, it won’t be easy.
“We have to accumulate three points, we have been good on the road and we hope to continue with the performance,” said Cardoso.
“Obviously, I play back to back [away games] we have to make our recovery properly what we are. We had a day off today [Thursday]. We’re heading home tomorrow just to brush things up and set up our good tactics.
Before the trip to AmaZulu, the heads were just a point better than the Black basement side Leopards in what was a new low that featured their struggles.
But Cardoso believes that fighting for three points is only a passing phase.
“We want to thank our supporters for being there behind us and continuing to support us even when times are tough. We will come out of what we have been through. I think this is only a phase that we have gone through, ”said Cardoso.
