We have to do the business – Bernard Parker

Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker says they “must do the business” when they face Stellenbosch FC at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium in Nedbank Cup Last 16.

Chiefs will face Stellenbosch on Saturday evening, 10 March, with kick-off set for at 20:15.

“We have to be in the right frame of mind. We need to be ready mentally, especially as this will be their biggest game of the season. Playing against Chiefs is for them like a cup final,” Parker told the club’s official website.

“We have to do the business as a team – it shouldn’t be based on individuals. It’s not only up to the strikers to score goals. For example, I played most of my career at the number 10 position, giving so many assists for others to score. However, on top of that, I scored a lot of goals. If a striker doesn’t score, it’s up to the midfielders and even defenders to help out.

“We have to be careful not to put too much pressure on ourselves. We just have to keep it simple and take it one game at a time. Our focus must be going past Stellenbosch to reach the quarterfinal.”
