Do-Or-Die! Chiefs At Risk Of Longest Drought Ever

Kaizer Chiefs Could Make This Their Longest Trophy Drought

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 21, 2018 04:29 PM

Kaizer Chiefs go into this evening’s Nedbank Cup semi-final with Free State Stars knowing that they’re running the risk of making their current trophy drought the longest in the club’s history.

Read: Chiefs' Semifinal Injury List

Since the Amakhosi were formed in 1970 they have never gone three whole seasons without picking up a single piece of major silverware, but that could all change if they don’t get their hands on the cup at the end of their current campaign.

Chiefs have had plenty of trophyless seasons over the course of the years since their inception, but only on two occasions – in 1995 & 1996 and 2011 & 2012, – have they gone two whole years without winning something. That was until last season when 2016 & 2017 joined the list.

Now, having last picked up a trophy at the end of the 2014/15 season, Steve Komphela’s side are one cup defeat away from making the wrong sort of history at Naturena, something that the head coach and players will be very eager to avoid.  

 
The Glamour Boys last won the Nedbank Cup in 2013 during Stuart Baxter’s first season with the club, but have failed to even reach a final since then, a fact they will be looking to change by winning tonight’s fixture.

Meanwhile, Ea Lla Koto are looking to make their own form of history by reaching the final of the Nedbank Cup for the first time in the history of the club, with Luc Eymael looking to write his name into the club’s record books by going all the way.

@fisto vs zebraditor : It's been a while since Zebbies last reached a cup final let alone winning it so reaching the Nudebank cup final would be considered as massive achievement at NaZoorena.
