The match against Kaizer Chiefs will be a tough one for us, but we will prepare fully for it, Isaacs said.
He added that it is a challenge for them, but it is a challenge they are up for.
Black Africa is currently in third place on the NPL log.

We want to start the new year on a high note as we want to win the cup for the fourth time in a row, he said.
