Billiat sets sights on Soweto Derby double

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat has set his sights on doing the double over Orlando Pirates when the two sides meet in the Soweto Derby this weekend.

Billiat played an instrumental role in Kaizer Chiefs' 2-1 win over Orlando Pirates in November when he assisted Keagan Dolly for his side's opener, before winning a 92nd-minute penalty which resulted in the Amakhosi's match-winning goal.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's reverse fixture, the former Zimbabwe international revealed that he and his teammates are motivated to try and record another win, although they're not letting the occasion get the better of them.

"It is a big game, but I always want to play the game – and not the occasion – and not get carried away," he told Kaizer Chiefs' official website

"We are old enough to not let little things affect the outcome of the game. We want to be professional about the game. We want to enjoy it and win it.

"I feel we can only do well if we concentrate on our game," he added. "If we follow the instructions and go into the game with the correct state of mind, how we train and how the week goes will also determine how well we do."

Chiefs and Pirates are currently level on 32 points in the league standings but the Amakhosi have the advantage of three matches in hand over their cross-town rivals.
