Mabotsa: I can't single out Chiefs player

CAF Champions League

Former Kaizer Chiefs full-back Isaac 'Yster' Mabotsa says it is hard to single out one player that is sure to help the club in this Saturday's do-or-die battle against Horoya FC.

The Guinean outfit need only a goalless draw to advance to the knockout stages of the CAF Champions League, while the Glamour Boys will need at least a scoring draw to continue their journey in the competition.

Mabotsa, who played an important role in Amakhosi's CAF African Cup Winners Cup triumph in 2001, knows exactly what it takes to succeed in Africa.

"To be honest things are not right at the club man, but in Africa so far so good on my side, it's not a bad record," Mabotsa tells KickOff.com.

"But I think for now we are under pressure. At least if we can get a win, we can get our pride back, but to be honest things are not looking good. 

"To tell you a truth, this is a tough game. I mean always when you're playing away it's not easy – we recently saw that with Bafana Bafana, when everybody was shocked that we are even lost to the likes of Sudan. 

"Away games are not easy, especially in Africa. We really have to double our effort to get a win there, because anything is possible in football, we can comeback with a win. 

"I can't single out anybody who can win it for us to be honest, beause nobody is consistent week-in and week-out. This week this one is performing, next week it's this one. At the moment, it's all about the team work. That's the only thing that can help us win the game."
