MTN8: Chiefs back in the Cape. FIVE things we expect
What a jam-packed season. Kaizer Chiefs are playing again. Here are five things we expect as they visit Stellenbosch FC for MTN8 action
It’s a treat if you’re a Kaizer Chiefs fan in the Western Cape. Amakhosi play their second game in the province within five days.
KAIZER CHIEFS UNDER PRESSURE AFTER CAPE TOWN CITY DEFEAT
Following Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Cape Town City, coach Arthur Zwane and his players are suddenly facing cooking pressure.
An exit out of the MTN8 first round is simply unthinkable. Steve Barker’s Stellenbosch stand in the way at their Danie Craven home stadium.
FIVE THINGS WE EXPECT
- Possible Ashley Du Preez return from injury. Zwane said it’s possible
- Possible Edmilson Dove availability after waiting for his work permit
- Siyabonga Ngezana to be dropped as protection from the crowd
- It’s the Western Cape, therefore expect another big Amakhosi crowd at the Danie Craven
- A combative Stellenbosch performance to fight for their first-ever trophy.
Meanwhile, Zwane’s main man Yusuf Maart will serve his second match out after getting a red card against Richards Bay last weekend.
Sunday’s game is set for a 15:00 kick-off.
