Itumeleng Khune has appealed to increasingly disenchanted Kaizer Chiefs fans to keep the faith and not to write off the struggling club’s chances of winning the league title this season.

Chiefs are yet to win a match this season – they’ve already lost a league game to BidVest Wits and a cup tie to Cape Town City – and even some of the club’s staunchest supporters are starting to fear the worst.

But Khune said Chiefs are still one of the league title contenders and it is premature for anyone to write them off so early in the campaign.

“It is too early to panic‚” Khune said.

“We have only played one league game and we still have 29 games to go‚ a lot of points to collect.

“So all I’m saying to our fans is keep on coming to the stadium‚ keep on supporting us and we will get the results.”

But the Chiefs and Bafana goalkeeper conceded that they are under a bit of pressure at the moment and things will need to change in Wednesday night’s league encounter against Platinum Stars.

“Every game we play‚ we experience pressure. Even when we play friendly games‚ fans are expecting great results . We have to make sure that come Wednesday (against Stars)‚ we start off by winning the match.

“We have been playing good football but the results have not been coming. So we just have to improve on that‚ score goals‚ keep clean sheets at the back and we will be home and dry.”
