Cosmos V Chiefs In Numbers

Absa Premiership Round 7 – Jomo Cosmos vs Kaizer Chiefs
 
Date: 20 October 2015
 
Time: 19h30
 
Venue: Olen Park
 
Jomo Cosmos are looking for a rare upset when they host Kaizer Chiefs this evening, with all eyes on the three points after failing to pick up a win in six league outings this  season. The Amakhosi on the other hand have been heavily criticized for not killing off teams let alone allowing them to get back into games when they have scored first, and will also hope to record only their third PSL encounter in their last six matches.
