Lebogang Manyama has stressed the importance of Kaizer Chiefs getting a positive result when they host Petro de Luanda in the CAF Champions League on Saturday.
Chiefs will be looking for their first win in the group stages, having drawn their opening home game against Horoya, before losing 4-0 last weekend away to group leaders Wydad Casablanca in neutral Burkina Faso.
“Another tough game, against an unknown opponent, obviously we want to get points to get up and running, just to get up to speed with everyone, and it’s a home game, so we have to give it our all and make sure we get the three points,” Manyama told Chiefs media.
Manyama admits it’s been a tough start in the group stages.
“Obviously, we we knew it was gonna be tough, we’re playing some of the top teams in Africa, Wydad, we played Horoya, so I think the first game, we could have won, so many chances, but unfortunately, we couldn’t get it in as it has been for us this season, we missed chances.”
“And then sometimes we get punished for missing those chances. But yeah, like I said, it’s another home game, we have to make sure we go out full force, full attack, because I think in this tournament, when you win your home games, it makes things a bit easier for you, so to make sure we take the next game and make sure that we get three points.”
Chiefs are in third in Group C with one point, while Petro are yet to win a match, and are bottom of the group with zero points.
