Kaizer Chiefs defender, Edmilson Dove, believes his team is now aiming for Caf Champions League after defeating Orlando Pirates in last week’s Soweto Derby.
This weekend Amakhosi takes on Richards Bay at the King Zwelithini Stadium and a win will move them to fourth place behind Orlando Pirates.
“Going into this game we are confident,” the Mozambican international tells Kaizerchiefs.com. “
“We have been training hard. In training, the main focus is on what we can improve on and maintain the things we have been doing well. We shall try by all means to go there and claim the three points.”
“It’s a game of football and anything can happen but we are going to go there, give everything on the field and we hope to return to Joburg with three points in the bag.
“We are aiming for Champions League qualification. We need to keep going until the end and it’s a position we have to fight for and I think we can do it.”.
A week before the Soweto Derby, Dove missed the league match against Golden Arrows due to illness. It was his long ball which was headed home for an own goal by Olisa Ndah for the only goal of the match against Pirates.
“Going into the game [against Pirates] we knew it was going to be difficult. It is always difficult playing against Pirates but we did everything the coach told us to do during the week at training, and I guess it worked. We played as a team and at the end of the day we got rewarded for our hard work at training.”
“It was a great game and it was good to see our fans back at the stadium, packed into the stands. All we could see were yellow (gold) jerseys.”
