The Chiefs Reserve team will be in action in the DStv Diski Challenge Rewired as they head to Bloemfontein to face Celtic at Petros Molemela Stadium in Rocklands for a 10:00 am kick-off on Saturday. The Chiefs reserves led by their coach Arthur Zwane will be looking to build on their victory against Black Leopards last weekend.
After opening their campaign with a 2-0 loss to Orlando Pirates in their opening game two weeks ago, Zwane’s charges bounced back with a 3-2 victory over Black Leopards last time out. Victory in their group two clash against a Celtic team who have lost both their games this campaign will put the Chiefs reserves in a strong position as they look to catch current log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
While the Chiefs reserve’s will be in action in the Free State, the Chiefs age group teams will be playing host to Wits Juniors on Saturday morning with the Chiefs U-13s fresh off a 4-2 victory over Sundowns in their last Gauteng Development League game will kick off at 9:00 am. The Chiefs U-17 team who also defeated their Sundowns counterparts last week 5-2 will also be in action at 9:00 am, while the Chiefs U-15 and U-19 teams will play at 11:00 am. Chiefs U-15 were defeated 2-1 by Sundowns last weekend while the Chiefs U-19 won 3-1. The young Amakhosi teams will be looking to build on those promising performances from last week with another good showing against Wits.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, access to the Chiefs Village for the games will be restricted to players and technical staff only. No fans will be given entry and the games will unfortunately continue to be played behind closed doors until there is a change in the regulations.
