Khune: Dikwena are beatable

MTN8

Chiefs will play Dikwena in the first leg of the MTN8 semi-finals after the two were pitted against each other in today's draw at the PSL offices.

Amakhosi have lost on their previous two trips to Rustenburg, with Khune naturally hoping for a different outcome when the clubs meet there later this month.

"In the past we did struggle, so we will see whether we will play in the afternoon or evening, but I think they are beatable," Khune says.

"I would have loved to start at home, get the job done at home, and then going away we know we don't have pressure.

"But it is important, even when you go away, it is always nice winning the first game. You set a tone and for us we just have to win our first leg and when we host them they will be under pressure.

"We really need to dig deep to do so."

Khune adds that he would have welcomed facing anyone in the next round of the competition.

"I would have loved to meet anyone, and having been drawn against the defending champions it's a fair draw.

"I think all the teams that are here, they deserve to be here, they worked to be here and I think if we had been drawn against any other team, no-one will complain about it.

"It's been five years with us not laying [our hands] on the trophy, so it will only take us four games to win it and we are left with three more games to lay our hands.

"But we will need to work hard to do so."
