Moroka Swallows striker Lungisani Ndlela says that Chiefs hold no fear for him and he and his team-mates will treat Sunday's SAA Supa 8 game as they would any other.
Ndlela burst onto the local soccer scene last season in fine style, scoring 10 goals in all competitions for the Birds in only 20 games.
He then got the new season off to a flyer by scoring a hat-trick against Ajax Cape Town, and is now hoping to help Swallows reach their second successive SAA Supa 8 final by beating Kaizer Chiefs at the Absa Stadium in Durban on Sunday afternoon.
"We have no problem to play Chiefs or any other team for that matter. If you want to win a competition you have to beat the best. Everybody knows how big Sunday's game is and we are all highly motivated," said the 2m tall marksman.
Asked whether he is happy to play the semi-final clash against the Amakhosi at a neutral ground in Durban, Ndlela replied : "its no problem to us. Swallows have good support all over the country and the team has played in a a neutral game in Durban before, so we know what to expect."
Chiefs have one of the meanest defences in the league, but 'Chippa' is not overly worried about having to face the likes of Patrick Mabedi or Fabian McCarthy.
"I just go out to play my own game. I will make sure that the defenders have to worry about me, not the other way around," said a confident Ndlela.
Ndlela's good form of late has cast him into the limelight as far as a possible Bafana Bafana call-up is concerned, but the player says that he is taking things one step at a time.
"I still have to work on aspects of my game," he said. "At the moment my main focus is on Swallows and to help them achieve as much success as possible."
