Kaizer Chiefs striker Kingston Nkhatha says his side should switch focus to their upcoming league encounter against relegation-threatened Maritzburg United on Tuesday night at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
The Zimbabwean helped Kaizer Chiefs to ease past Namibian outfit Black Africa when he netted a brace in the CAF Champions League preliminary round first-leg at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night. The Glamour Boys comfortably won 3-0 courtesy of another goal coming from Mandla Masango.
“I am happy to have scored and contributed to our win against the Namibians. It was a good win for the club. The game was difficult as he we didn’t know what to expect from the opposition,” the former Black Leopards striker told his club official website after the match.
“We have done our job for this match and our focus has to switch quickly to the next game away against Maritzburg United on Tuesday night the Premier Soccer League match,” added the 28-year old striker.
Kaizer Chiefs are on course to retain their league title, as they sit first on the Absa Premiership log with 39 points and 8 points clear of second-placed over Mamelodi Sundowns. And a win at Maritzburg United on Tuesday night, where they haven’t won in their last three visits, will be their tenth in a row.
