Posted in News, Team News on Oct 24, 2021.

Coming from a 4-0 win last weekend against Chippa United, Amakhosi will be in action again this afternoon when they face SuperSport United in the DStv Premiership. The game will be played at United’s home ground which is the Lucas “Masterpieces’ Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville.

SuperSport also come into the match on the back of a 2-0 home win against Baroka FC on 16 October in their last DStv Premiership match.

Kaizer Chiefs are happy to see defender Sfiso Hlanti return to the team this afternoon after serving his two-match suspension. The left-footed player received his marching orders against Marumo Galants on 26 September in Polokwane. Another returnee is Kgaogelo Sekgota who has recovered from injury. Sekgota will be on the bench.

Coach Stuart Baxter decided to make two changes to his defence and midfield by including Hlanti and Anthony Akumu Agay in the starting line-up. The two players will replace Reeve Frosler and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo who started the last game against the Chilli Boys.

Coach Baxter will keep to his 3-4-3- formation in today’s game.

After keeping a clean sheet in the last game, goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi retains his position between the goalposts.

The back three will have Austin Dube will be on the left, while Mulomowandau Mathoho will be in the middle and Njabulo Ngcobo on the right of Amakhosi’s defence

In midfield, Njabulo Blom will be on the right, Hlanti on the left as wing-backs.  Agay will join Phathutshedzo Ńange in the middle of the park.

The attack is unchanged with Bernard Parker on the left, last weekend’s two-goal score Keagan Dolly on the right and another goal scorer and provider from last weekend, Khama Billiat leading the attack.

Parker will wear the captain’s armband.

The officiating team will be led by referee Luxolo Badi. His first assistant referee is Kamohelo Ramutsindela and the second assistant is Lalelani Mngadi. The fourth official is Kenneth Mamegwa.

The eighth DStv Premiership match of the 2020-21 season between the Phefeni Glamour Boys and Matsantsantsa a Pitori will start at 17:30 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville.
