Chippa United are in high spirits ahead of their Telkom Knock Out quarter-final match against Kaizer Chiefs at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.

The match comes at the right time for the home team, as they are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions.

Any team that beat Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits within the space of three days, deserves respect.

The Chilli Boyz eliminated the TKO 2015 champions, Sundowns last Sunday and followed this up with a league victory over the reigning Absa Premiership  champions Wits, on Wednesday.

Chippa haven’t lost a game since Teboho Moloi took over as coach from Dan Malelesela in September.

But the former Orlando Pirates and Jomo Cosmos midfielder admitted it won’t be easy against cup specialist, Kaizer Chiefs, but at the same time he is confident  that his players would be equal to the task

Midfielder, Samuel Julies, has found a new lease on life since relocating to the Friendly City at the begining of the season.

Julies, who struggled for game time at Mamelodi Sundowns, scored the crucial  goal  that knocked his former team out of the Cup and then netted a brace against Wits.

He is looking forward to the match against the mighty Amakhosi.

The match can go either way as both teams are playing well at the moment. The last time Kaizer Chiefs played here, Coach Steve Komphela was pelted with plastic bottles after Amakhosi suffered a shock 3-1 loss to the Chilli Boyz.
