Chiefs have had a bad start to the season, having been knocked out of the MTN8 in the first round, and they currently sit 13th in the PSL standings with only five points from five games.
Amakhosi have also gone winless in their previous three games, conceding six goals in the process, but Makhaula is afraid of his opponents, comparing them to a dead snake.
Makhaula told the club's media department, "We cannot overlook Chiefs because they lost some of their games."
"Because we are playing at home, we are under pressure. They're also under a lot of pressure to succeed. Because we finished second last season, we are always under pressure."
Makhaula, who was one of the best midfielders in the PSL last season, indicated that Chiefs will see their match as an opportunity to get back on track after being beaten last season.
"It's encouraging, but it's also dangerous because you might believe this is a dead snake, but it's not, and it'll wake up and bite you again," he continued.
"Once it wakes up and bites, it's impossible to get rid of it." Let us not underestimate them. "Don't declare the snake is dead when it's merely resting and trying to figure out how it'll wake up." The Chiefs' condition can swiftly deteriorate, and we could find ourselves in a precarious position."
This season, AmaZulu head coach Benni McCarthy has given the 31-year-old player the captaincy of the team.
"I'd rather lead by example and persuade the troops that we should go into combat." He continued, "I believe coach Benni gave me the armband for this reason."
"I don't believe in talking on the field, and he told me that no matter how talented you are, if you don't work hard, you won't get anywhere, therefore I believe that working hard is the correct thing to do in life."
The broadcasting plans for Kaizer Chiefs' league match against AmaZulu on Saturday have been revealed.
At the Moses Mabhida Stadium, the two sides will face off.
The game begins at 15:30 p.m.
The critical match against Usuthu will be broadcast LIVE on SuperSport PSL channel 202, according to Chiefs.
The SABC Sport has yet to clarify whether or not the match will be broadcast on any of their free-to-air platforms.
After a shaky start, the Chiefs are under a lot of pressure to turn things around.
