TS Galaxy FC’s clashes with Kaizer Chiefs are always epic and the two sides will battle it out for maximum points this coming weekend in what promises to be a humdinger.
The Rockets and Amakhosi will face off at the splendid Mbombela Stadium on Sunday at 5pm.
The game is live on SuperSport PSL (channel 202). One of TS Galaxy’s rising stars, Masilake “Scara” Phohlongo is confident that they can get the better of Amakhosi.
“As a team we are ready. We are prepared. It is the first game of the season. It is a must-win game for us. We know what we are looking for in a season. Everyone is ready. The competition for places is tough. We will fight for one another,” Phohlongo elaborated.
The Rockets and Amakhosi met in the last match of last season.
“We’ve worked hard as a team. If we continue to work hard as a team, then the individuals will shine. When it comes to big games, the team always works hard. Everyone in this team wants to play against the so-called big teams. We want to win every game and it will start on Sunday. We are ready for it,” he added.
Amakhosi succumbed to defeat at the expense of Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 quarter finals last week.
“We have watched them. We’ve seen their weaknesses and strengths. Chiefs are a big team. We will give them respect but in the field of play, it is eleven versus eleven. We are ready. On Sunday, it is going to be all about who works hard. We need to fight,” Phohlongo explained.
TS Galaxy FC achieved big results last season at Mbombela Stadium beating the likes of Swallows FC, AmaZulu and Orlando Pirates.
“It is a bit sad that we don’t have supporters at the stadium. Mbombela Stadium is our fortress. We’ve beaten the likes of Swallows and Orlando Pirates at Mbombela. We must not concede. That is going to be key for us.” Phohlongo elaborated.
