Kaizer Chiefs news: Giovanni Solinas unsatisfied with log standing
Posted: 7 November 2018 Time: 08:00
Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas has turned his attention back to the league and is not happy with his side's log position.
Chiefs are currently fresh off a morale-boosting victory over SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout to advance to the semi-final of the competition.
However, their league form is of some concern, having failed to pick up a win since the end of September against AmaZulu.
Amakhosi's next assignment is against Black Leopards, whom they previously were forced to overcome in a penalty shootout in the cup, at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Currently in seventh position, with 14 points from 11 games, Solinas is not in the least bit pleased with how the Absa Premiership table reads as Chiefs are now eight points adrift of leaders Orlando Pirates.
"We need to focus on this next game [against Black Leopards], we had no time to recover [after Sunday's game against SuperSport]," said Solinas.
"But the position of Kaizer Chiefs is not good, so we need to win this game because we need to improve our position on the log.
"We are Kaizer Chiefs, we play to win."
A victory over Lidoda Duvha could send The Glamour Boys up to as high as third, depending on Mamelodi Sundowns' result against Free State Stars this evening.
The Brazilians are in sixth position – also on 14 points, but boast a superior goal-difference.
