Leonardo Castro says Kaizer Chiefs will need to have a good game plan when they square-off with Baroka FC in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.

Castro, who made his debut against the Limpopo side and scored in the 2-1 league victory, added that the Ke Yona Cup is a chance for Amakhosi to get silverware this season.

“We need to be ready from the moment that the referee blows the whistle to kick-off the game. We want to score early. Baroka always approach their games with a ‘do-or-die’ attitude, they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. They can’t be underestimated. This means that we must be focussed from the start and take care of business with a sound game plan and a determination to win,” the striker told the Chiefs website.

“We need to look forward as well. The Nedbank Cup is an opportunity to win a trophy this season.”
