The teenager played the full 90 minutes of Chiefs’ 2-0 win over Sundowns to extend their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership, and was involved in some crucial passages of play in order to make sure that his side walked away with all three points.

Blom was one of two Chiefs youth products who played on the day, alongside Siyabonga Ngezana, while two others – Bruce Bvuma and Happy Mashiane – were on the bench.

Meanwhile, Middendorp has also used the likes of Happy Mashiane, Lorenzo Gordinho and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya over the course of the 2019/20 campaign so far, and another Amakhosi product, Sizwe Twala, has made the matchday squad more than once as he aims for his senior Chiefs debut.
