Cape Town City's evergreen shot stopper Shu-aib Walters admits that he hasn't been satisfied with his performances of late but underlines how he plans to rectify it.
The 34-year-old goalkeeper says that reflecting on one's performances and critically evaluating your games guards against complacency.
“I feel I can do a lot more if I focus harder. The reason why I’m so hard on myself is when you are not very critical of you own performances, you tend to get complacent and that is something I want to avoid," he tells KickOff.com.
"Hopefully I can put in a good performance against Chippa [United] by keeping a clean sheet."
City face the Chilli Boys in the Absa Premiership at the Nelson Mandela Bay on Saturday and Walters feels that his in-form side have nothing to fear from their hosts.
“We’ve proven that we can beat the best teams in the PSL away from home,” he states. “So why should we fear Chippa?
"We have to go there with strict structures and be very disciplined. The thing with ball playing teams is that you always have a chance against them.
“They play a good passing game but are sometimes exposed at the back. I think this is where we can exploit the space and hurt them. We have the pace and skilful players to give them a hard time."
