JOHANNESBURG – Kaizer Chiefs are determined to finish third on the Premiership log according to influential playmaker Bernard Parker.

With two matches remaining in the season, Chiefs are fourth on 42 points – one point behind third-placed Maritzburg United.

The two teams clash at FNB Stadium on Saturday, and a win for either side could well determine third spot on the log.

“We are on a mission to finish third as that will give us a position in the Caf Confederation Cup,” said Parker.

Chiefs lost against Golden Arrows on Tuesday, and that result would have come as a heavy blow for the Soweto Giants.

“We have been knocked hard,” Parker admits. “We need to reset ourselves mentally. It’s a big challenge as a footballer. We have to be mentally strong and stick together.”

“We want to win the final two matches of the season, because we want to finish in a good frame of mind.”
