Truter: We fancy our chances against Chiefs
AmaZulu FC head coach Brandon Truter believes that his side has what it takes to defeat record-winners Kaizer Chiefs in their MTN8 semi-final tie.
The two teams are set to meet in a two-legged semi-final tie in October this year and Amakhosi are a team with an impressive cup pedigree having won a record 15 Top 8 titles since the tournament was established in 1972.
“We fancy our chances against any team. The boys have been playing well and the team is always improving,” Truter, who masterminded a win over Cape Town City in a quarter-final match last weekend, said.
“There is always room for improvement. I expect us to be top quality against Chiefs. At the semi-final stage of any competition, there is no such thing as weak opposition,
“It’s all top quality teams and for us drawing the mighty Amakhosi means it’s going be a good game for our supporters and it will also be a good game for us in terms of testing.”
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) will announce the dates, venues, and kick-off times for the two semi-final matches in due course.
“The first leg being away will give us an advantage. If we can get the job done early away from home, it will put us in a good position before the second leg,” Truter added.
“We want to do well, we want to win every match and this is a cup on offer so we’ll fancy our chances against Chiefs.”
AmaZulu will be away to Chiefs in a DStv Premiership match at the iconic FNB Stadium on Saturday.
