Defender Kgotso Moleko can’t sleep after Kaizer Chiefs defeats

Posted: 11 March 2016 Time: 21:22

Kaizer Chiefs defender Kgotso Moleko says he’s happy with his increased game-time, but is finding difficult to sleep following his club’s inconsistent run of late.

The 26-year-old has started six of the last eight games that Chiefs have played, slotting in at right-back – a position that he has spent almost all of his time at Chiefs playing as back up to Siboniso Gaxa.

The full-back is pleased with the opportunity he has been given, yet says he has not been able to sleep soundly following two losses in quick succession by the Soweto giants.

“I am happy that I have been getting game time, but sometimes it is not good because we have been losing and I cannot sleep,” he says. “I don’t know about my colleagues, but I cannot sleep because we are losing and it is hurting.

“We have let our fans and the chairman down by losing in the Nedbank Cup, but I think everything will come right.”

After the sucker punch defeat to Orlando Pirates on Saturday, Chiefs were put to the sword by Platinum Stars midweek – a defeat all but dashed any hopes of retaining their League title.

“I think now it is tough, but we just have to focus and try to fight more as a team,” Moleko says.

With all trophies in domestic football now seemingly out of reach, the Glamour Boys can only hope that they keep progressing in the CAF Champions League, having already reached the first round, with Ivorian side ASEC Mimosas their next opponent.

“I think we can progress in this competition,” Moleko says.

Chiefs face Mimosas at FNB Stadium on Saturday evening, with kick off set for 19:30.
