Unchanged starting XI for Chiefs

Posted in News, Team News on Sep 16, 2017.

Kaizer Chiefs will start in tonight’s game against Bidvest Wits with the same line-up as the one that defeated Cape Town City 2-0 on Wednesday.

This means, for example, that the 17-year-old Wiseman Meyiwa will get his second start in a row as well as Bongolethu Jayiya and Philani Zulu.

Meyiwa had an outstanding debut against Cape Town City, doing excellently in the middle of the park, while Zulu did great at the left-back position. The former Maritzburg United player also provided the cross for Chiefs’ opening goal in Cape Town.

Jayiya, meanwhile, worked hard and filled gaps wherever needed. The midfielder joined Amakhosi this season from Cape Town City.

Chiefs host the reigning Absa Premiership champions, Bidvest Wits, at the FNB Stadium tonight (kick-off at 18:00).

The clash will be refereed by Phelelani Ndaba.
