Teams: Highlands Park vs Kaizer Chiefs
Date: 22 February 2020
Venue: Makhulong Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs visit Highlands Park in the Nedbank Cup last 16 on Saturday afternoon at Makhulong Stadium.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.
Amakhosi lost some momentum at the top of the Absa Premiership table after going down 2-1 to Maritzburg United last Saturday, with their lead now being cut to just four points.
In the cup, Chiefs got to this stage of the tournament after edging GladAfrica Championship side Royal Eagles 1-0 in the last 32 a fortnight ago.
The Glamour Boys have three players; Lebogang Manyama, Daniel Cardoso and Reeve Frosler sitting on three yellow cards and all are one booking away from missing the Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates next weekend.
Meanwhile, the Lions of the North are picking up form at the right time, as they are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions, including three consecutive victories.
Highlands reached this stage of the tournament after beating second-tier side Uthongathi 2-0 in the first round two weeks ago.
The Lions of the North will be without key midfielder Mothobi Mvala, who is suspended after picking up his fourth booking at Wits.
Chiefs completed a league double over Highlands this season already, winning 3-2 in the league opener in August 2019 at Makhulong Stadium and again won 3-0 in the reverse tie at FNB Stadium at the beginning of January 2020.
Amakhosi have not lost to Highlands since their return to top flight in 2016, winning five and drawing one.
Here's how they line up:
Highlands: Heugh, Mokoena, Mbhele, Fransman, Banda, Mzava, Rae, Mogaila, Shalulile, Mbatha, Motsepe.
Subs: Kapini, Nyatama, Munyai, Ramagalela, Jooste, Ramoraka, Makhaula.
