Chiefs Duo Walk Suspension Tightrope

Kaizer Chiefs are happily suspension-free heading into this weekend’s Soweto Derby with Orlando Pirates, however two experienced players find themselves walking on thin ice.

The Glamour Boys have an important few weeks ahead as they look to progress in the Telkom Knockout and maintain their place on top of the Absa Premiership table, and November sees them face their bitter rivals twice in the space of seven days. 

Chiefs currently find themselves five points clear at the top of the log after nine games, though they have played three games more than Bidvest Wits who are third, and this weekend they take on the Buccaneers in a TKO quarter-final for a spot in the last four.

Middendorp does have a number of players who are doubtful for the game due to injury, with Itumeleng Khune (groin), Kearyn Baccus (ankle/knee), Bernard Parker (ankle), Nkosingiphile Ngcobo (Achilles) and Reeve Frosler (hamstring) all potentially missing out, but he will be pleased that he has no players who are unavailable due to suspension. 

With that in mind, however, Willard Katsande – who captained Chiefs against Mamelodi Sundowns – picked up his third yellow of the season in the 2-0 win at the weekend and is now just one booking away from suspension, as is goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi. 

A booking for either this weekend would see them forced to sit out the midweek clash with Chippa United ahead of the Absa Premiership Soweto Derby on November 9, while avoiding yellow cards would see them walking a tightrope against the Chilli Boys before the second Pirates clash.

Meanwhile, Lebo Manyama, Daniel Cardoso and Frosler are the only other Chiefs players that have picked up more than one booking in all competitions so far this season, though only two clubs – Cape Town City (20) and AmaZulu (18) – have acquired more yellow cards than the Glamour Boys (17) in the league.
