Zwane hoping for lady luck against Maritzburg

Kaizer Chiefs, Arthur Zwane, says he is hoping lady luck will be on his team side when they take on Maritzburg United in the DStv Premiership this evening.

Amakhosi will take on the Team of Choice at the Harry Gwala Stadium, a week after Casric Stars in the Nedbank Cup.

Zwane’s side is on position four, level on points with third-placed Orlando Pirates – and both teams are chasing the Caf Champions League spot.

“The guys are paying attention to detail, which is key,” Zwane tells “Once you see players so hyped up and focused, you know that we are in the right frame of mind. We are just hoping that lady luck will be on our side in converting the chances that we create.

“When we played them in the Cup game, it took over 100 minutes before we scored our first goal. For 90 minutes, we were on top of them though we did not take our chances and we knew at some point they would drop. This time around, we going to have to do that inside 90 minutes to make sure that we get the result.”

Zwane will be missing his key defender, Siyabonga Ngezana, who is out with suspension. The defender has played 12 out of 22 Chiefs’ league matches this season.

“Not having a consistent line up has been part of our journey this season and we have accepted it, but you know, the players who are given the opportunity when we reshuffle the team always take their chances, which is very key.

“It talks to individual preparations and how the players are always giving their best and we are always trying to strike a balance, when that situation comes up.”

The match will kick off at 20h00.
