Larsen confident ahead of Chiefs clash



Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen says his side can upset Kaizer Chiefs in their Nedbank Cup quarterfinal encounter at Free State Stadium on Saturday.

Chiefs ran out 3-0 victors in a recent league clash on March 31, and Larsen believed the cup match would be a different prospect.

''It will be a different ball game," said Larsen.

"The intensity of the game will be a lot different. In a cup you have one bite a the cherry, you have to go all out from the onset to get a result after 90 minutes.

Larsen said the match would be an entertaining match-up for the supporters.

"Its going to make a great encounter for spectators.

"We are going to go all out to put Chiefs under intense pressure and penetrate them much as we can to score goals."

The coach said being underdogs for the game meant his side had nothing to lose.

''We are not under pressure. I believe we are due for a good win on Saturday.''

Phunya Sele Sele have striker Lerato Manzini ruled out for the eagerly-awaited cup fixture as due to injury.

'We also have our fair share of injuries and I'm not going to make an excuse about it.

Larsen said he would draw on his success in other Cup competitions to help his side through.

''In terms of the cup run, we would like to replicate exactly what we did in the Telkom Knockout by reaching another cup final in just one season. "It will be a great milestone for the club to achieve.

"It will be the first time in the club's history to reach two cup finals in one season.

"This is what we are trying as much as possible as we can to achieve as a team and technical team."
