MATCHDAY: Komphela’s Superiority Over Hunt To Give Chiefs Advantage?

Looking ahead to all of today's Absa Premiership action

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 16, 2017 11:59 AM

Kaizer Chiefs and Bidvest Wits square off today in what will be considered a key fixture for both teams, but Steve Komphela will be happy about his record against Gavin Hunt.

Komphela’s PSL Record v The Early Candidates To Replace Him

The Glamour Boys and The Students will meet at FNB Stadium this evening after a slow start to the season, with the reigning champions yet to register a league win thus far and Steve Komphela’s men fresh off of a win over Cape Town City, which has raised confidence amongst the team that had yet to register a win themselves in all competitions prior to the 2-0 victory.

Furthermore, Chiefs boast the historical advantage over Gavin Hunt’s team, with 13 wins from their last 22 league encounters. Furthermore, Steve Komphela was in charge of the last four league meetings and has won three of them, including the final matchday win last season. However, Komphela hasn’t always boasted this kind of record against Hunt, having lost six of his 17 games against the former SuperSport United mentor since the 2008/09 season, while in charge of Chiefs, Maritzburg United, Free State Stars and Platinum Stars and winning only five.

The key player to look out for is Bernard Parker, who has five league goals to his name against The Students, since arriving at Amakhosi in 2011.

In other league action today, Baroka FC host Free State Stars, having won one and lost one against Ea Lla Koto last season, but coming into the game undefeated after two draws and a win coming from the opening three games this season, while Luc Eymael’s charges have yet to register a win and have lost twice already this season.

The other game sees Chippa United travel to Platinum Stars, with both Peter Butler and Dan Malesela having parted ways with the clubs and each losing two and three of their three opening games of the season, respectively. The tie is often evenly contested, with three of the last eight league encounters ending in stalemate and Chippa winning three, while Dikwena have claimed just two victories in that timeframe.

Parker should do what he is paid for and score goals. His last league goal was in 2015, a striker's mandate is to score goals not to add numbers, if he fails to deliver he must make way for the youngsters who are ready to score.
