Despite Reeve Frosler returning to fitness for the Glamour Boys following his recent injury problems, Middendorp stuck with Moleko as reward for his performances of late in an Amakhosi jersey.

The full back endured a difficult first half against Abafana Bes’thende though, and supporters were calling for him to be substituted midway through the first half of the encounter. 

With the score locked a 0-0, Chiefs’ German head coach did decide to change things up as he brought Frosler – who put the cross into the box before Lebogang Manyama volleyed home a late winner – into the fold, admitting that Moleko was ‘under pressure’. 

Speaking to the club’s official website, Middendorp said, “Kgotso Moleko was put under pressure and he worked his socks off. We pulled him out and brought in Reeve Frosler to stabilise the right-back area. It was good to see Frosler returning and giving us the option of attacking from the flanks.”

Chiefs now have a couple of weeks to work on their combinations and get the likes of Khama Billiat fit to play again, and those extra two weeks before taking on Royal Eagles in the Nedbank Cup could give Frosler a chance to win back his starting berth once again.
