Starting XI: Chiefs v Chippa

Absa Premiership 

Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Chippa United

Date: 07 April 2018

Venue: FNB Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs welcome Chippa United to the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to put pressure on the Absa Premiership front-runners.
 
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.
 
The Soweto giants are under pressure to finish the season strongly and still have a slim chance of winning the league title.
 
Teenage Hadebe netted a last-gasp winner to seal a 1-0 victory over Free State Stars at Goble Park on Wednesday evening.
 
As a result, Amakhosi find themselves third on the log, six points behind second-placed Orlando Pirates and seven points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
 
On the other hand, the Chilli Boys are struggling to put together a string of good results and find themselves dragged into the relegation dog fight.
 
Vladislav Heric’s troops went down 2-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday evening,  which was their third loss from their last four league matches.
 
The Eastern Cape-based side have only won one of their last nine matches and will have a tough time trying to avoid the relegation play-off spot.
 
Chippa currently occupy 13th spot, only three points away from third-from-bottom placed SuperSport United.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Chiefs: 32. Khune, 2. Mphahlele, 22. Zulu, 20. Hadebe, 4. Cardoso, 3. Mathoho, 13. Katsande, 27. Ekstein, 14. Tshabalala, 29. Moon, 8. Castro.
