On facing Royal AM in an important Nedbank Cup quarter final:
We are playing a very difficult game, away against Royal AM, a team that has been very difficult to beat, even at home. We are looking forward to the game. The guys look ready, we know how important it is for us to get a win so that we can proceed to the next round of the competition.
On the state of Chiefs squad:
We have lost Dillan Solomons, who was sick. He has not been able to recover for this game and will not be available. We will see how we balance our squad and see who can come in for him.
On what to expect from Royal AM:
They played very well in their last game, which they won 3-1. They can vary their play and are a difficult team to play against in terms of their playing style. They can easily play 3-4-3 or 4-3-3. It tells you about the tactical flexibility in their squad. We just anticipate that whatever they bring on board, we are going to be able to deal with it.
Kaizer Chiefs Coach Arthur also confirmed that Dillan Solomons is a big loss for him because he is a right back who understands what he wants and his speed also helps the team to recover lost balls.
Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach Arthur Zwane also said that they might be able to use Zitha Kwinika in that right back position or Siyabonga Ngezana who has been in a good form and his performances have been so magnificent,the coach also believes that Siyethemba Sithebe can protect the Kaizer Chiefs back 4 with his good Defending Techniques and his Passes can help them find Ashley Du Preez who can deal with forward Passes and also benefit from them.
Coach Arthur Zwane says that they will be the underdogs coming into this game and he believes that his players can be clinical in front of goal so that they can go back home with more confidence.
