Posted: 8 March 2016 Time: 20:32
Kaizer Chiefs fullback Kgotso Moleko says Amakhosi have enough experience in the side to swiftly bounce back from their Nedbank Cup elimination.
Chiefs exited the tournament at the first hurdle with a 2-0 loss to Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates this past weekend.
The Absa Premiership champions will next meet Platinum Stars in the league at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday.
“We have enough experience in the team to overcome Saturday’s setback quickly,” Moleko told his club's official website.
“We have to lift up and continue working hard. We had a chat about what happened on Saturday. We will rectify our mistakes and we will go into Wednesday’s match with an open mind. We always respect our opponents. However, we need the points to keep within touching distance with the current log leaders.”

Steve Komphela's charges are third on the table with 39 points from 21 games - 13 points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
