Chiefs To Change Things Up?

Kaizer Chiefs are on the verge of securing their best run of form in more than two years, but will Ernst Middendorp be tempted to switch things up against Cape Town City?

The Glamour Boys have won three games on the bounce in the Absa Premiership as they beat AmaZulu, Baroka and Golden Arrows without conceding a single goal, and a win against the Citizens would see them win four in a row for the first time since back in April 2017.

Middendorp has George Maluleka, Reeve Frosler, Samir Nurkovic and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya – none of whom weren’t present for their last win over Abafana Bes’thende – all back available for selection, though he may well choose to stick with a winning formula.

A statement on Chiefs’ club website on Thursday read, “The medical team has confirmed that a number of players who were out with injury are expected to be available for selection for Saturday’s match. They include George Maluleka, Samir Nurković, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya and Reeve Frosler.”

The returning four players have all played at least five league games for Chiefs this season as the German coach called upon them to help climb to the top of the table, but it remains to be seen whether they will be thrown straight back into the XI following their return to fitness.

Maluleka, Frosler, Nurkovic and Ntiya-Ntiya were all rested for both the Shell Helix Ultra Cup and Macufe Cup in order to make sure they remained in contention for the bumper encounter with City, and fans will be watching eagerly to see whether they get to see them in action or not.

Should Middendorp stick with the XI that beat Arrows or bring in some returning players?
