Ahead of their rescheduled midweek game against Golden Arrows, interim coach Arthur Zwane said he is expecting a good reception from their fans in Durban.
Zwane was speaking after their 1-0 defeat to Stellenbosch on the weekend, where the Amakhosi faithful had come out in their numbers
While disappointed with the result, Zwane, who led the team alongside Dillon Sheppard after Stuart Baxter’s departure from the club last week, was pleased to see and hear the fans pushing the team.
When asked by iDiski Times about the fans’ reception, Zwane said he hopes to see a similar reception in Durban.
“Look, it’s quite pleasing,” Zwane responded.
“Look, they needed supporters. It’s been a while now since we’ve been playing without them, cheering us up, and encouraging us to do well, as a club.
“Ja, I think just hearing their voices and encouraging the boys to do well, even though we went down one nil.
“But it was quite pleasing. And I think it will motivate the boys going forward.
“Because I think we also expect the same reception in Durban. There’ll be a lot of supporters waiting to see the boys.
“Like I said, it’s been a while [that] they haven’t been coming to the stadium and supporting the boys.
“But ja, we’re looking forward to the next game. And hopefully, we’ll be able to get the maximum points.”
Chiefs are scheduled to play Arrows at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
