Starting XI: Chiefs v Maritzburg

MTN8

Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Maritzburg United

Date: 18 October 2020

Venue: FNB Stadium

Time: 15h00

Gavin Hunt will begin his tenure as Kaizer Chiefs coach with an MTN8 quarter-final encounter against Maritzburg United at FNB Stadium on Sunday.

Hunt replaced Ernst Middendorp, who left the club at the end of last season after Chiefs let the title slip from their grasp on the final day of the season.

But the former Bidvest Wits tactician will have to do without striker Samir Nurkovic who is recovering from injury but Leonardo Castro does make the bench this afternoon.

Maritzburg are still searching for their first major trophy, having lost to Mamelodi Sundowns in this year's Telkom Knockout final.

The last time the sides met, the Team of Choice prevailed 2-1 thanks to a brace from Daylon Claasen in the space of two minutes before Nurkovic pulled a consolation goal back for the Amakhosi.

Here's how they start:

Chiefs: Khune, Frosler, Cardoso, Mphahlele, Sasman, Baccus, Agay, Ngcobo, Billiat, Kambole, Parker.

Subs: Bvuma, Castro, Moleko, Zulu, Ngezana, Mashiane, Blom, Sifama, Lesako.

Maritzburg: Mpandle, Sanoka, Allie, Kutumela, De Reuck, Bongo Mbourou, Buchanan, Claasen, Morgan, Hlongwane, Moseamedi.

Subs: Barr, Ismail, Hlubi, Shanud, Modise, Bhengu
