We learnt from our mistakes – Molekwane
Former Kaizer Chiefs fullback Tlou Molekwane believes that Bidvest Wits are now more prepared and won’t make the same mistakes against Chiefs as they did in the league defeat last month at Mbombela Stadium.
Molekwane was speaking ahead of Bidvest Wits’ Telkom Knockout encounter with Chiefs at the Bidvest Wits Stadium on Friday night.
“We learnt from our mistakes in the previous game against Chiefs and we have so far rectified everything at training,” he said.
“This match on Friday will be a new ball game because since they (Chiefs) played us a lot has changed. We have now gelled nicely as a team.”
Molekwane believes that the two week break due to FIFA international matches will not derail their side’s momentum as they had recorded back-to-back wins against Maritzburg United (away) and Lamontville Golden Arrows (home) before the recess.
He continued: “We have not had a break because we have been training nonstop preparing for our next fixture, so we have not taken our foot off the peddle.
“We might not have had a friendly match during this period but we have been training very hard and we are match fit to face Chiefs.”
The Clever Boys have aimed to at least win a cup competition this season and Molekwane is confident that a victory against Amakhosi will help launch an assault on silverware this season.
“We are ready for the game on Friday night and we are under no illusion that the match will be easy.
“We are going there as a team and hopefully we will prevail. We have one our last two games and we want to continue that winning feeling,” the 23-year-old Seshego-born player said.
Molekwane also urged his teammates to unite on the pitch on Friday night in front of what is expected to be a sell-out crowd.
“When I was at Chiefs I realised people called them ‘trophy specials’ because they win every cup and they won the Telkom Knockout several times.
“This match won’t be different for them because they are going to come hard at us make sure that they proceed to the next round,” Molekwane concluded.
