JOHANNESBURG, April 27 – Kaizer Chiefs are determined to finish third on the Premiership log according to influential playmaker Bernard Parker.
With two matches remaining in the season, Chiefs are fourth on 42 points – one point behind third-placed Maritzburg United. The two teams clash at FNB Stadium on Saturday, and a win for either side could well determine third spot on the log.
“We are on a mission to finish third as that will give us a position in the CAF Confederation Cup,” said Parker.
Chiefs lost against Golden Arrows on Tuesday, and that result would have come as a heavy blow for the Soweto Giants.
“We have been knocked hard,” Parker admits. “We need to reset ourselves mentally. It’s a big challenge as a footballer. We have to be mentally strong and stick together.”
“We want to win the final two matches of the season, because we want to finish in a good frame of mind.”
