Premier Soccer League
16-17 October 2021

resumes after the FIFA international break.

"I think there is enough happening to encourage us to believe this could be very good if we can just shift that ten percent.
“As always the time you get free you want to spend with your family [during the FIFA break]. I will probably visit one of my kids and let them take care of the old man. After that, it’s back to the grind and we will be working very hard,”
Chiefs lost to Royal AM in their last home match in the DStv Premiership and the defeat ended their three-match unbeaten run as the hosts.
