Starting XI: Chiefs v Wits
Absa Premiership Starting XI: Kaizer Chiefs v Bidvest Wits 16 September 2017
Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Bidvest Wits
Date: 16 September 2017
Venue: FNB Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to compound Bidvest Wits’ woes as the two teams lock horns in a Absa Premiership clash at the FNB Stadium this evening.
Steve Komphela has been under scrutiny for some time now at the helm of Kaizer Chiefs and has a tough task tonight against defending champions Bidvest Wits.
The Glamour Boys will be buoyed by their midweek victory over an in-form Cape Town City and will be looking to build on that achievement. That win was Chiefs’ first of the season after a draw and a loss respectively.
Bidvest Wits on the other hand are having a less than satisfactory start to their title defense having not won a single game since match day one.
Gavin Hunt’s men are going through a tough period and it gets no easier as they take on a Amakhosi side with their tales up.
It is difficult to identify why The Clever Boys are struggling to gain a good run of form and it is no secret that if they wish to defend their Absa Premiership title they need to start picking up points and will be presented with an opportunity to do so this evening against Chiefs.
Here's how they line up:
Chiefs: 1. Khune, 18. Moleko, 26. Gordinho, 4. Cardoso, 22. Zulu, 31. Katsande, 12. Maluleka, 38. Meyiwa, 6. Jayiya, 14. Tshabalala, 9. Paez.
Wits: 16. Josephs, 2. Allie, 3. Hlatshwayo, 4. Khumalo, 6. Scott, 10. Gmal Amr, 11. 1Pelembe, 12. Pule, 13. Hlanti, 14. Claasen, 20. Pienaar.
