Vilakazi On Importance Of Getting A Result Against Chiefs

Richards Bay coach Vusumuzi Vilakazi has stressed the importance of beating Kaizer Chiefs for their survival battle in the DStv Premiership.

The 15th-placed team take on Chiefs on Sunday afternoon, and with a game against bottom-placed Cape Town Spurs next week, Bay will be hoping to pick up three points to stretch their lead over Spurs to eight points.

Vilakazi was speaking on Extra Time on Gagasi FM and stated that they are trying to remain positive as they still have enough games to ensure their safety, and possibly even avoid the playoffs.

“It’s very important,” Vilakazi told Gagasi FM.

“I think the boys are even showing real hunger in training on how bad they want to win that match. Getting the 3 points will give us a huge boost in that when we go and face people that we’re fighting relegation with (Cape Town Spurs) at the back of a win will see us speak another language and have confidence high. 

“So it is important for us to soldier on and grind for the results and try to fight for the club badge.

“I think when we look at the situation mathematically we must also be positive. When you look at the points that are still there for us to fight for the team might survive, not with playoffs offs but it might survive if we win those games. 

“So I might say that we take one game at a time but we still have that importance of saying looking at our situation right now we have exhausted the space of losing games or even going for a draw. Our aim right now as I have said we have exhausted everything is just go win, especially if we are playing at home.”
