Life is not going to get any easier for Kaizer Chiefs after the international break, with some tough fixtures lined up, including two against the club's former coaches.
Amakhosi have not tasted a Premiership victory since August and will start their post international break schedule with a clash at home against Gavin Hunt's Chippa United at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
While Chippa have not quite hit the ground running with Hunt at the helm, the coach will no doubt love to get one over his former side, after the difficult campaign last season.
After hosting Chippa, Amakhosi travel to Tshwane eight days later to face Kaitano Tembo's in-form SuperSport United. Six points currently separate Chiefs and SuperSport, who have beaten the Soweto giants twice in the last four Premiership matches, while the other two ended in a draw.
In November, Stuart Baxter's men host Stellenbosch on the second day of the month and then four days later, are at home to Soweto rivals, Orlando Pirates. Last season Chiefs did not beat Stellenbosch and they only managed one victory over the Buccaneers in four meetings during the 2020/21 season.
After hosting Pirates, Amakhosi will travel to KZN to take on Maritzburg United, who are coached by their former mentor, Ernst Middendorp.
