Castro: It's a must-win Soweto derby v Orlando Pirates

Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro believes the club must collect the three points in this Saturday's Soweto derby against fierce rivals Orlando Pirates.

Chiefs are currently 10 points behind Premiership leaders Bidvest Wits after 18 matches played, and head into this weekend's clash needing a victory to revive any hopes of a title challenge.

Meanwhile, the Sea Robbers are five points behind the Clever Boys though they do have one game in hand over Gavin Hunt's side.

However, should they lose to Chiefs, it could come as a critical blow to their own title challenge.

Castro told his team's official website: "The Soweto Derby is South Africa's biggest game, no other game even comes close. I don't feel any nerves.

"I barely sleep after having lost a game. I keep thinking, 'What should have been done differently?' But you also need to move on, you can't get stuck in a disappointing moment.

"It's a must-win Derby, also because we want to get closer to the top of the log. We have improved a lot since [Ernst Middendorp] joined. We are training hard and are very motivated to do well [this weekend]."

The kickoff in this sure to be exciting clash is from 15:30 at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
