Teams: Stellenbosch v Kaizer Chiefs
Date: 27 November 2019
Venue: Cape Town Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs shift focus from the Telkom Knockout to the Absa Premiership when they take on Stellenbosch at the Cape Town Stadium this evening.
Another trophy slipped away from the Soweto giants after a 2-1 loss to Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals on Sunday afternoon.
Back to the league, Chiefs have a chance to restore their 10-point lead over second-place Mamelodi Sundowns, who defeated AmaZulu 1-0 on Tuesday evening.
Chiefs had a couple defensive issues over the weekend, but they are still without the suspended Erick Mathoho.
At the other end of table, Stellenbosch come into the encounter winless in their last two encounters which has seen the side drop to 14th position.
Steve Barker have a suspension of their own as Morgan Gould won't face his former side following his red card in the goalless draw with Highlands Park.
