Starting XI: Arrows v Chiefs
Absa Premiership Starting XI: Golden Arrows v Kaizer Chiefs, 24 April 2018
Teams: Golden Arrows v Kaizer Chiefs
Date: 24 April 2018
Venue: Princess Magogo Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs will look to bounce back to winning ways when they take on Golden Arrows in an Absa Premiership match at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Tuesday night - Here's how the teams line up.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
Amakhosi come into this game off the back of a 2-0 loss to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi-final this past weekend.
The result saw Steve Komphela resign from his position as head coach and will be replaced on the bench by Patrick Mabedi on an interim basis for the final three games of the campaign.
Chiefs’ last league result, however, saw them register a 1-0 win over Platinum Stars on April 15.
The Soweto side have not managed to score more than once in a game since beating Baroka FC 2-1 back in January.
Arrows have won just one of their last five league matches and suffered their eighth loss of the season when they were beaten 1-0 at league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns on April 17. The sequence of results has brought them just five points from the last 15 up for grabs.
In head-to-head stats, Chiefs and Arrows have met in 33 league matches since 2000/01. The Amakhosi have claimed 18 wins compared to six for Abafana Bes’thende, while nine matches have been drawn.
When the teams met earlier this season, in Soweto in September 2017, they played to a goalless stalemate.
Here is how they line up.
Arrows: 1 Mbaeva, 5 Mzava, 20. Mathiane, 21 Mngwenge, 2 Nkombelo, 4 Venter, 37 Ndwandwe, 35 Zuke, 6 Shongwe, 27 Magubane, 41 Lamola.
