Mochudi Centre Chiefs general manager Zaahid Jalal says they are targeting a place in this season's Mascom Top 8 Cup final.

Magosi secured a 2-1 home victory over Security Systems in the quarter-final first-leg match which was played at the Lobatse Sports Complex a fortnight ago.

The two sides will now lock horns in the second-leg clash which is scheduled to be played at the Jwaneng Stadium on Sunday.

"We are getting there, even though, the rain has affected our preparations," Jalal told BotswanaPremierLeague.com.

"Otherwise everything is on track. The boys will be ready for the game.

Chiefs have never reached the final of the Mascom Top 8 Cup.

"We will go there in search for another win which would see us advance to the next round," he added.

"This is our chance to reach the Top 8 Cup final for the first time.

"We are hopeful going all the way to the final."

Khumoetsile Kufigwa and Lesego Galenamotlhala netted for Chiefs in the first-leg match.

Patrick Kaunda grabbed Galaxy's consolation goal. The winner on aggregate will advance to the semi-finals.
