Akpeyi won' t relax despite reaching milestone

Playing a greater number of games than some other goalkeeper at Kaizer Chiefs this season hasnt enticed Daniel Akpeyi to view himself as the clubs undisputed No.1. Daniel Akpeyi of Kaizer Chiefs.

Akpeyi, who kept his 50th association clean sheet in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) when Chiefs beat Maritzburg United 1-0 keep going Sunday, is chances on to begin when they invite AmaZulu in another DStv Premiership conflict at FNB Stadium today (5.30pm). 

In spite of missing Chiefs initial four association games, where Bruce Bvuma and Brandon Peterson were liked to him, Akpeyi has since begun seven back to back Premiership games. 

Assuming somebody would let me know that I am the No.1 guardian, I would request that he reword that. I'm only one of the four incredible attendants at the club whos been given chances of late. We have a strong goalkeeping office, Akpeyi, 35, told Sowetan in a wide-going meeting yesterday. 

I view myself as lucky to play nowadays however again that doesnt mean I am agreeable and loose. Tomorrow it tends to be another person whos playing, so I am not the No.1 by any means. Akpeyi speaks on Khune 'rivalry' | The Citizen

On his perfect sheet achievement, Akpeyi sounded rather disappointed, featuring that he ought to have more that 50. Akpeyi showed up in the PSL from Nigerian side Warri Wolves to play for Chippa United in 2015. 

I had some familiarity with this achievement through a companion yesterday. I would say to myself that it's anything but a decent record. Because I think its great to keep this measure of clean sheets, I figure I ought to have kept more than 50, noticed the Chiefs attendant. 

Akpeyi arrived at his 50 years of clean sheets from 144 games. At Chippa he played 92 association games and never surrendered in 31 of those games, while at Chiefs its 19 clean sheets from 52 association excursions.

AmaZulu have been a respectable side in the beyond couple of months, so beating them would require us to accompany our A-game. It wont be simple at everything except were prepared to battle, said Akpeyi.
