Mayambela: We have an edge on Chiefs

Chippa United coach Clinton Larsen and captain Mark Mayambela believe the Nedbank Cup trophy will be a good celebration for the club's 10th anniversary. 
 
Speaking ahead of their tough semifinal against Kaizer Chiefs, both coach and captain have vowed to make the Eastern Cape proud by defeating Amakhosi on Saturday night at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. 
 
"Preparations have gone pretty well, we don't have any injuries or suspensions, we are fully clean. It's the tenth anniversary for our club so we want to make sure we celebrate it in style," said Larsen. 
 
"I said it before, I'd rather face Chiefs right now than in the final. We can beat them and we've proven that by beating [Bidvest] Wits and [Mamelodi] Sundowns. We must make sure we don't give them any chance."
 
Mayambela also emphasised the importance of this game, especially for the province and the club, and understands Chiefs will bring their 'A' game as they haven't won any silverware in years.
 
"It's a huge game for us, especially the province and the city, and what makes it greater like the coach said is our ten-year anniversary. We would like to use this cup as a celebration," he added. 
 
"We know they will come at us very hard as they haven't won any trophy in years but we are confident, we have men who are capable of delivering top performances in big matches.
 
"In terms of individual players we have enough to match Chiefs, and I believe we will have an edge compared to them."
