Pirates legend's CAF advice for Chiefs

CAF Champions League

Former Orlando Pirates defender Gavin Lane has offered some advice to Kaizer Chiefs ahead of their second leg against PWD Bamenda.

After last making an impact in Africa in 2001 when they lifted the Mandela Cup, the Glamour Boys are back in continental competition this season in the CAF Champions League.

The Cameroonian champions stand between Chiefs and the next round as they look to qualify for the group stages carrying a 1-0 win from the first leg in Limbe.

'Stability Unit', who won the African Champions Cup with Pirates in 1995, says it is very important for Chiefs to score another goal on Saturday.

"Ja it's always difficult, you know what I mean, all they've got to do is believe in themselves and believe in each other," Lane tells KickOff.com.

"You know when you go and play against these African teams it's very tough. With Gavin Hunt they are still trying to learn the process of how Gavin wants them to play. So it's going to take a little bit of time.

"Gavin Hunt is an astute coach, he knows all the opposition very well. He would have studied all the opposition he is going to play against. So I think they must go out and believe in themselves, then they are going to get a victory.

"You know to get a great victory like that away from home [last week], it's always great because you know that they've got to come to your house and score two goals to win the game.

"So as soon as Chiefs score a goal then that means they've got to score three goals. So it was important for them to get that away-goal like they did. It gives them a little bit of a cushion.

"But you know you can't sit back and rely on your one-goal lead so, as I said it's vitally important for Chiefs to score a goal."
