Coach Zwane’s ‘positive headache’ for Chippa game

Posted in News, Team News on Oct 15, 2022.

On the state of the Chiefs squad after a good run of recent results:

We are coming into this game with a positive headache in terms of welcoming players back. We are welcoming Zitha (Kwinika) and George (Matlou) back from suspension, and we are also welcoming back Khama Billiat, which gives us a bit of a headache. But it’s a healthy one in terms of the selection of the squad.

On the approach to the Chippa game:

We are looking forward to this game. We know it’s going to be a tough one. We are playing at home, against a very tricky team that is unpredictable. We don’t know how they are going to approach this game, whether they will sit back and wait for counter attacks, while knowing they’ve also got a very good team going forward. We will approach this game with caution. We are trying to avoid conceding goals early in the game, but what is encouraging is that we are creating goalscoring opportunities.

On managing a busy fixture schedule with three games in the space of a week:

It’s a tough one, but we have everyone available for this one. It’s a case of managing the players, because the games are coming thick and fast, but we are looking forward to the game to make sure we get the desired results. The luxury we have is having everyone back. It’s a matter of getting the combinations right and to see who is going to be ready for the game and not changing too much, as we are trying to get the chemistry right in the squad.

On juggling his players given the frequency of games:

We are trying our level best, it looks like everyone is ready, it’s a matter of getting the right balance as we also have a game again on Wednesday against TS Galaxy. We will make sure we balance the scales and ensure everyone gets game time, with the hope that we will continue where we left off.
