Amakhosi Debuts On The Cards?
Kaizer Chiefs are back in action next week after sitting out the weekend due to the MTN8 quarterfinals, and the Amakhosi faithful could see a couple of debuts…
The Glamour Boys host SuperSport United on Saturday night as they look to make it three wins in a row at the start of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership campaign, however will have their work cut out against a SuperSport United side that have won their last two games – against Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits – by three goals to nil.
Chiefs have got off to a solid start this season under Ernst Middendorp as they beat Highlands Park 3-2 and sneaked a 1-0 win over Black Leopards, but SuperSport will be their biggest task yet as they look to get back on top of the table.
Middendorp, who was spotted at Bidvest Stadium for Matsatsantsa’s 3-0 MTN8 win, may look to call upon a couple of fresh faces on Saturday after both James Kotei and Yagan Sasman got some extra time to work with their new teammates, and Sasman is now back available for selection again after serving a two-game suspension.
The German has used 18 different players so far this season in Chiefs’ two league games, and the others – including Kotei and Sasman – will be eager to try and force their way into his plans in the coming days before Saturday’s clash at FNB Stadium.
