Steve Komphela will be eager to get Kaizer Chiefs' league campaign off to a positive start, but he will have to do so without the services of a number of players. Can you name who they are?
The Glamour Boys will face Gavin Hunt's Bidvest Wits, who finished second on the log last season, in their first match of the campaign, and they are well aware of the tough encounter that awaits them.
Chiefs reinforced heavily during the transfer window, seeing them welcome 10 new faces to the team, but one of their signings will miss the game due to injury.
He isn't the only one, though, as three other seasoned campaigners will be forced to watch from the stands, and it remains to be seen how their absence will affect the club.
