Kaizer Chiefs took on Moroka Swallows in a friendly game at FNB Stadium today, beating the Dube Birds 6-0.
Following yesterday’s 1-1 MTN8 draw with Orlando Pirates which saw the Amakhosi crash out of the tournament, Stuart Baxter was keen to give some of his fringe players a run in the lead up to next month’s Telkom Knockout.

None of the players from Chiefs’ starting XI against Pirates took part in the encounter but a number of the substitutes from the game, including Kingston Nkhatha, Lehlohonlo Majoro and Josta Dladla, played.
A brace from Nkhatha as well as single goals from Kaizer Motaung Junior, Matthew Rusike, George Lebese and Majoro completed the rout over a Swallows side whose main exclusion was Lefa Tsutsulupa, who sat in the stands.
Meanwhile, trialist Ivan Bukenya played 90 minutes at centre-back for the reigning PSL champions as Baxter continues to run the rule over him.
Chiefs’ next game will see them take on Polokwane City away from home on October 5, while Swallows host University of Pretoria at the same time.
