Kaizer Chiefs slayer Eleazar Rodgers ready for more

Posted: 9 March 2016 Time: 09:57

Eleazar Rodgers says he is looking for more of the same when Platinum Stars meet Kaizer Chiefs in the Absa Premiership tonight.

The striker scored two late goals coming off the bench in the last meeting as Dikwena came back for a 2-1 win.

Rodgers expects Chiefs to come out firing, but feels his side may have the advantage given their victory last time out. 

“It’s a home game for us and we definitely want to capitalise on our home advantage,” he tells KickOff.com.

“Mentally it’s gonna be an advantage for us because we beat them away, so they will obviously come with a point to prove at our home ground. 

“But we will try to use our home advantage to the best of our ability and yes … we don’t want to give away the three points.”

The former Mamelodi Sundowns striker, who has scored five League goals so far, has been used mostly off from the bench, as was the case against Chiefs.

“You always want to start and you always want to gain as much game-time as possible, but it also goes according to the tactics,” Rodgers adds.

“We have plans against certain teams and sometimes I start, and sometimes I'm on the bench.

“Mostly when I come from the bench I'm also effective and I can change the game. I think maybe the coaches uses that tactics against certain teams and whenever I'm given a chance, if it is five or 90 minutes, I always gives my best and try to score.”

Stars, who are fifth on the log, host third-place Chiefs at Royal Bafokeng Stadium at 19h30.
