The Chilli Boys have gone five games without registering a victory.

They last won a match when they beat Absa Premiership rookies Baroka FC 4-1 in Polokwane in September. And now, Malesela says they are now fully focused on their next match against Cape Town City at the Nelson Mandela Bay on Saturday.

“The FIFA break gave us an opportunity to go back to the training ground and find solutions,” Malesela was quoted on the club website.

“We are fully focused on the next challenge. We need to knuckle down and show the hunger to win games again. We lacked a bit of effort against Bidvest Wits, and at the end that was a difference between ourselves and them.

“We have a responsibility all of us here to defend the Chippa United emblem and take this project to greater heights. We have reminded the players of their bit on the field of play,” he added.

“We are playing at home and our objective when we take the field is to win, and it will not be different on Saturday.”

Chippa are eighth on the league table, with nine points after seven games, while City are fifth, with 14 points from eight games.
