Township Rollers public relations officer Bafana Pheto says there's mutual respect between them and Kaizer Chiefs.

Botswana side Rollers are scheduling to host South Africa giants Chiefs in an international club friendly match at the Francistown Sports Complex on Saturday.

The two sides clashed in the 2017 Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup semi-final match with Chiefs winning 2-0 at the James Motlatsi Stadium in South Africa last weekend.

"Kaizer Chiefs are our friends that is why they decided to follow us here," Pheto told Botswana Football.

Chiefs will take on their fierce rivals Orlando Pirates in the 2017 Carling Black Label Champion Cup in Johannesburg on Saturday, 29 July.

"They have a cup game that they are preparing for and they came with full squad," he added.

"We respect them and they respect us, so on Saturday both teams will give their best to win the game."

Kick-off between Rollers and Chiefs is at 15h30 CAT.
