Highlands Park could find themselves playing a very motivated Amakhosi side after a pep talk by club chairman, Kaizer Motaung.
Chiefs are looking for their first win of the new season and are looking to break a winless streak in six games. Failure to get a win will see Chiefs hit an all-time low of seven games without much to show for their efforts on the training grounds. This is dismal considering the club's stature and winning culture. Komphela's charges will be aiming to keep up with early pace setters and club arch rivals, Orlando Pirates.
The return of Siphiwe Tshabalala should add inspiration in attack, accuracy from dead ball situations and goals from midfield. Keagan Buchanan, like Shaba has been playing for MDC side and should make the bench for the tie. His debut could prove to be the missing link.
Allan Freese will have a plan for the game, but he takes on a fired up Amakhosi team who seem to be improving by the game after a loss, which was followed up by an unlucky draw. Katsande and Gordinho have indicated that they will back their coach with their performances.
Can Chiefs get their first win of the season tomorrow?
