KAIZER Chiefs go into Sunday's game against Ajax Cape Town with the hope that their multitude of fans will be on their best behaviour.

KAIZER Chiefs go into Sunday's game against Ajax Cape Town with the hope that their multitude of fans will be on their best behaviour.

Chiefs and Ajax clash in the second leg of the MTN8 semifinals at Orlando Stadium.

Kickoff is at 3pm.

Amakhosi, who went down 1-0 to the Urban Warriors in the first leg last weekend, have warned that they are still cup specialists. Coach Vladimir Vermezovic promised the Capetonians a hot reception.

"We'll be playing at home and I'm confident that we'll do well," he said.

While not condoning fans' unruly behaviour - which saw the club being fined R500000 by the PSL on Wednesday - the coach feels they were frustrated with the lack of goals.

Vermezovic said that much-maligned striker Kaizer Motaung junior was injured while Zimbabwean Knowledge Musona was still struggling to adapt to life in the Premiership.

"Kaizer needs to be encouraged instead of being booed," pleaded Vermezovic.

His opposite number, Muhsin Ertugral, said he understood the pressure facing his club.

"There is no doubt that Chiefs will come at us, but that can also be to our advantage because it means they'll be exposed at the back," said the former Chiefs coach.

"One goal should be enough to take us into the final."
