Point of Correction; Mthokozisi Dube had two shots on target against Chiefs not one shot on target.

Out of the five mentioned players the weakest is Mthokozisi Dube, he is so lucky that he is the preferred right back at the moment, but Matlaba, Mobara and Jele is still in the running for that position.

@Carder305 Memela Got Space There, As Long As We Play 4 Defenders At The Back. Him And Lorch Can Be Our Wingers With Mulenga And Shonga Up Front.
