Absa Premiership Starting XI Chippa United Vs Mamelodi Sundowns 14 February 2017
Teams: Chippa United V Mamelodi Sundowns
Date: 14 February 2017
Venue: Sisa Dukashe Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will look to move within touching distance of the top of the Absa Premiership table, when they face Chippa United at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in East London on Tuesday.
The Chilli Boys have registered three victories from their last five legaues games and occupy ninth position on the table with 19 points from their alloted 15 games. Victory against Masanadawana can take Dan Masalesa's side into the top half of the table.
Chippa United are on the back of a morale boosting 2-1 victory against Baroka, courtesy of strikes by Thamsanqa Sangweni and Rhulani Manzini's 98th minute winner.
Masandawana put their title credentials on full display, when they handed Orlando Pirates their worst-ever loss - hammering them 6-0 in a ruthless performance at Loftus Versveld Stadium.
Pitso Mosimane's side can take a step closer to raetaining their league title, but still play catch-up in the campaign due to their involvement in the Champions League campaign, which they subsequently won.
The Chloorkop based-outfit occupy fifth spot and have won their last four consrcutive league games - netting 12 goals, whilst only conceding one in the process.
As expected, Mosimane has rung in the changes in preparation for his side's CAF Super Cup against the TP Mazembe on Saturday night.
Here is how they line-up.
Chippa United: 1 Akpeyi, 24 Thopola, 35 Bergman, 13 Chabalala, 7 Mako, 21 Sangweni (C), 15 Zuke, 23 Bereng, 41 Masuku, 6 Sali, 19 R. Manzini
Mamelodi Sundowns: 40 Sandilands, 6 Arendse (C), 20 Soumahoro, 3 Hachi, 20 Ngcongca, `13 Mabunda, 15 Mohomi, 10 Modise, 18 Zwane, 24 Zakri, 25 Castro
