SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobler expects tough Kaizer Chiefs clash

SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobler says the pressure is on for tonight's showdown with Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium.
SuperSport enter the match on the back of a 10-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, most recently drawing 1-1 with Baroka FC on the weekend.
Chiefs, meanwhile, saw their seven-game unbeaten run in the league end with a 2-1 defeat to champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
"I think it’s going to be tough and Chiefs are coming from a loss," says Grobler, who opened his account for the season in the 6-1 rout of Orlando Pirates a fortnight ago.
"Yeah, I mean Chiefs are a good team and they will always be a good team but I think there will be a lot of pressure on them in that game.
"But at the same time we are also under pressure because after this performance we are going to expect better from ourselves. I think it’s going to be a good game and it’s going to be a tough game."
The 28-year-old is personally in a good space after recently playing for Bafana Bafana in the World Cup qualifying victory over Senegal and netting in the friendly draw with Mozambique.
"I must say I’m feeling really good and it has been a long time since I have enjoyed my game as much as I’m now," adds the ex-Platinum Stars man.
"And I’m also happy to be back in the national mix. But it is difficult to talk about my form and my performances after the performance we just had (against Baroka). So we just need to put that behind us and learn from the second-half performance and build on from it."
