Moleko expecting a tough match against Black Leopards

Kaizer Chiefs defender Kgotso Moleko believes Black Leopards will prove a tough test for Amakhosi despite the gap between the two sides in the league standings.

Chiefs have had a wonderful season so far and sit comfortably top of the table, nine points ahead of their nearest competitor.

Black Leopards, on the other hand, are second from bottom and in danger of relegation.

However, Moleko is convinced Leopards are a better side than the league position represents and is expecting a challenge in their clash on Saturday.

"We have teams chasing us," he told his club's official website. 'So it was important that we won our last two games. We showed character."

"I am always happy to get game-time and it is good when you are able to come in and help the team get a result.

"The objective is to do well and to keep clean-sheets in these last two games was a positive. The partnership at the back was good and so was the communication between us.

"It will be crucial to manage the game. It will be a tough game physically, but we have the experience to play well in those conditions. We need to perform as we have done in recent times and if that happens, things will go our way.

"We always say that we take it one game at a time which is important.

"But we also look forward to go on an extended winning run – this is what we are looking at and it will be a test to see if we can manage that objective," he concluded.
