KAIZER Chiefs hope to bring high-flying Santos to their knees when they meet in an Absa Premiership match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium tonight at 8pm.
The two sides drew 0-all in the first round.
Chiefs striker Nkosinathi "Chippa" Nhleko said they were eager to get maximum points.
Nhleko scored in his debut for the club in Port Elizabeth where Amakhosi beat Bay United 2-0 in July. He scored again three weeks ago when Chiefs pipped Free State Stars 1-0 at Charles Mopeli Stadium.
"Our aim is to win and we will fight tooth and nail to pocket the three points," he said yesterday. "The atmosphere in the camp is great and we are looking forward to starting the second round with a win."
Ryan Chapman of Santos said they wanted to maintain their winning rhythm. The People's Club hammered Maritzburg United 4-0 in their last match.
"Chiefs have a tendency to underestimate us," Chapman said. "We've been doing very well and they should be worried. We are going to win and stay in the race for the league title."
Coach Boebie Solomons said consistency was crucial.
"Chiefs are a tough team but they will find us ready," he said.
Goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng is available after recovering from the injury he suffered against United.
