Kaizer Chiefs veteran striker Bernard Parker hopes that the club can maintain their good Absa Premiership form in the last few games when the season resumes and has heaped praise on the ‘Amakhosi’ faithful for their role throughout the 2019/20 campaign.
Parker spoke about the impact of the support from their long-suffering Chiefs fans and how the players are trying to ‘get Chiefs back to where it belongs’.
“We’ve got a good structure, no matter on the day what kind of formation we play, we stick to the same principles, we stick to the same things, the do’s and the don’ts, what works for us and what doesn’t work for us,” said Parker.
“For example, against Cape Town City, (a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Cape Town City at Newlands Stadium on Tuesday evening, August 2019).
“It was 1-0 to Cape Town City, the support was unbelievable, we had a set-piece, fans started clapping, creating that rhythm, we got the goal and after that everybody was confident automatically, just went into another level because of what the fans gave us, we scored another goal and won that game, so far so good for us, we want to get Kaizer Chiefs where it belongs,” concluded the former Bafana Bafana international.
The ‘Glamour Boys’ are eight matches away from lifting their first Absa Premiership title in five years. As things stand, Chiefs are top of the table with 48 points from 22 league games whilst the reigning league champions Mamelodi Sundowns have 44 points with a game in hand.
