Kaizer Chiefs defender Reeve Frosler has said that last weekend’s results are now water under the bridge as they now focus only on their next game, which is a Nedbank Cup Last 16 tie against Highlands Park at Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa on Saturday afternoon.
A miscommunication between Frosler and goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi led to one of the two goals Amakhosi conceded in a 2-1 defeat to Maritzburg United in a league game. Frosler says mistakes happen and they are there to serve as lessons.
“Last week is last week, it is a new week now,” said Frosler. “It happens in football, it was just unfortunate. It was a miscommunication but we look forward from there. We go on to the next game and try to correct our mistakes and do better,” he added.
Amakhosi get a chance to make amends against Owen Da Gama’s hard running side and Frosler says they know they have to bring their A-game to come out with a result in Tembisa.
“If you remember the last game we played at Makhulong it was an exciting game. There were a lot of goals scored. So, let’s hope we will be scoring some goals this weekend and make it exciting.
“They are a very hard-working team. They are tough guys and don’t back out of a challenge. This is going to be interesting and exciting for us. We are just going to go there and look for a victory,” he said.
The much-anticipated clash has already been sold out and Frosler believes their fans are the driving force behind their success.
“It is always nice to play in front of a big crowd. They support Chiefs and it gives us that extra oomph… that extra motivation to want to do better knowing they are out there for us.”
