Chippa not scared of Chiefs challenge


Chippa United goalkeeper Ismail Watenga has indicated that they are not scared of Kaizer Chiefs and will be out to drain points from them when the two clubs meet on Wednesday afternoon at FNB Stadium.

With the relegation sword on their throats, Chippa are in desperate need of points and will be pressured to take whatever they can out of whoever they will now meet in their last six games.

A point against high flying Golden Arrows in their last league match has given Chippa the courage that they will not be occupying any of the two bottom positions come the last day of the season.

"The mood in the camp is high and we are so motivated after the draw with Golden Arrows because they are one of the stronger and organised teams in the PSL this season," says Watenga.

The Ugandan has kept goals in the last four games in all competitions managing two clean sheets and conceding three goals.

If he can build on his clean sheet count, then Chippa might have something to take back to their base in Gqeberha from this trip that has previously brought them two wins from their last seven visits.

"Chiefs are big team, strong team and we respect them, but we are not scared of them. We do not fear them. We will respect them when they have the ball and when we have the ball, we will play them like any other team.

"Winning the Kaizer Chiefs game will be important for us because we are not in a safe position. Getting three points is so important for us because we need to survive the relegation and for me a clean sheet is good as an individual and for the team because it gives confidence to us so that we can keep fighting."

The 25-year-old Cranes international comes in with the experience of having played in Uganda, Ethiopia, and Kenya.
