Returning Jambo confident

Returning Zimbabwe international full back, Jimmy Jambo, said early this week he was confident of a Kaizer Chiefs win of the Telkom Knockout.

Jambo, who has been out of action for the Amakhosi since he sustained a career-threatening injury last season, said his side would have it easy against newboys Polokwane City, whom they meet in the first round of a tournament they won twice in 2010.

The SA cup kings became the first ever side to achieve such a feat, as Knowledge Musona, now back in their colours, dominated the tournament to win the biggest number of individual accolades in his best Absa Premiership season.

Polokwane were drawn to play at home, but with Chiefs having had a great showing at the likely venue – Peter Mokaba Stadium, which they have also used as their alternate home ground, Jambo saw victory ahead for the Naturena giants.

“This draw is going to work for us even though it is away from home. Polokwane is actually a home ground to us, so we’ll be okay,” said the 26-year-old Zimbabwean left back.

The Telkom Knockout is a one-match-per-round knockout cup competition, so every game is a must win. Jambo said Chiefs would be taking it one game at a time. “I think we must take it one game at a time and if we beat Polokwane City then we can focus on the next game.”
