Kaizer Chiefs, who have become easy meat to teams from the coast, are now tired of being punching bags of the KwaZulu-Natal clubs.

A concerned Thebe "Selepe" Mohatle, Chiefs' communications director, said this ahead of their Castle Premiership game against AmaZulu at Olympia Park Stadium in Rustenburg tomorrow.

"Indeed, we're gatvol of being easy prey to these teams and now we're getting into this game with guns blazing, determined to collect the full points.

"Our defeat against Golden Arrows is behind us, we're still in the business of pursuing the league championship. I pity AmaZulu because they will be meeting a very angry Amakhosi this time round," he said.

Chiefs were booted out of the Absa Cup by Arrows at the same venue, now Usuthu are intent on doing likewise tomorrow.

Mohatle said: "We aim to take the game to Amazulu from the first whistle and Thabo Mooki, Siyabonga Nkosi, enterprising Gert Schalkwyks and Arthur Zwane will give the AmaZulu defence a torrid time."

AmaZulu's general manager, James Dlamini said John "Shoes" Moshoeu and Siyabonga Mkhwanazi,will not be available for the clash because of injury, but they have acquired the services of players who are equally determined to pull the team out of the quagmire..

They are Kagiso Senamelo, Sbusiso Ntuli, Touch Mabaso and Denis Lota.

"We're at the bottom of the log but we're not yet relegated. There is still a long way to go and I promise our supporters that next season we'll still be in the elite league," said the confident Dlamini.
