Chiefs In Botswana: New Faces, Goals, Defeat

There is plenty for Ernst Middendorp to think about this week after he got a better look at Kaizer Chiefs' new faces in a friendly game with Township Rollers over the weekend...

See Chiefs' new signings - and more - in action in the gallery above!

Samir Nurkovic, Kearyn Baccus and Lazarous Kambole all started against the champions of Botswana in Gaborone, with the trio being given numbers 9, 24 and 7 respectively in the build-up to their first season with the Amakhosi - James Kotei, however (5) was left on the bench.

Goals from Kaone Vanderwesthuizen and Tumisang Orebonye after Bernard Parker had given the Glamour Boys the lead made sure the hosts picked up the victory, though it will be aspects of the performance -  rather than the result - that Middendorp and his counterpart, Tomas Trucha, will be focusing on.

Chiefs also had Bruce Bvuma back after he returned from international duty with Bafana Bafana, while Leonardo Castro, Siphelele Ntshangase and Lorenzo Gordinho all featured despite speculation surrounding their futures at Naturena.

Next up for Chiefs is next weekend's big Soweto Derby clash with Orlando Pirates as South Africa's two biggest teams lock horns for the return of the Carling Black Label Cup at FNB Stadium.
