Da Gama has no fear for Chiefs 22/04/04
Silver Stars come up against Kaizer Chiefs for the third time this season, and despite not being able to beat their more illustrious opponents yet, Stars coach Owen da Gama is confident of a win.

The Limpopo side held Amakhosi to a goalless draw in their Premiership match played a month ago and it was after this game that Chiefs coach Ted Dumitru was left fuming about the inadequate number of match balls supplied by the home side (Stars).

In their maiden Castle Premiership season, Stars also faced Chiefs in the Coca Cola Cup final, losing the game 2-0 despite putting up a good performance.

Da Gama told SASoccer365 that his players will have no fear for the Soweto Giants when the two teams clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

"We should have beaten them in the Coke Cup final and we recently held them to a 0-0 draw," Da Gama said, "so we have no fear for them whatsoever."

Chiefs need three points to extend their lead at the top while Stars need positive points to cement their place for the Castle Premiership next season.

"We'll go all out to ensure three points as our mission is to stay in the league while I expect nothing more than a fiercely determined Chiefs who will want to win the game outright.

Stars are 12th on the Castle Premiership table with 25 points from 25 games - three were docked for fielding an illegible player.

Despite a bitter 1-1 draw with Golden Arrows in a game that saw some controversial decisions go against the team from the north, as well the subtraction of points earlier this season, Da Gama believes his team will still be part of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) next season.

"We're not aiming for any honours but to stay in this league. Chiefs have all the pressure as they are gunning for the title," the former Moroka swallows player concluded.

Oscar Ntwaegae and Jabulani Nkosi are only two of the regulars that will be absent from the Stars line-up.
