Khama Billiat wants to use the final rounds of the ABSA Premiership season to prepare for the 2019 Afcon campaign.

Billiat is set to join Zimbabwe at the continental showpiece in Egypt in two months’ time and is looking to enter the tournament on a good note.

According to, Kaizer Chiefs striker said: “Definitely, it will give you confidence before AFCON, and you’ll be on top of your game if you actually finish the season strong.

“Going to such a big tournament with a lot of confidence will help you, and it’s always a player’s aim to be on top of his game.

“Also, it’s not only for AFCON, you never know who is watching and what happens after, so every game and every time you’re given a chance, but you also need to be on top of your game – because you’re always as good as your last game.”

Billiat has not quite been able to hit it off with Chiefs, having missed three of their last eight games due to little niggles and contributing just two goals since the end of January.
