Chiefs' Young Guns To Face Ke Yona

Kaizer Chiefs first team squad fringe players like Brilliant Khuzwayo, Kgotso Moleko, Matthew Rusike, Lorenzo Gordinho, Lucky Baloyi and Mandla Masango are expected to make up the majority of the team that take on developmental side, Ke Yona on Sunday (February 2). Development players from the club's youth ranks are also expected to play a part.

During last season’s Nedbank Cup, a talent search was launched, which culminated in 23 young players from different provinces being selected for the final team to play against Chiefs, who won the competition after beating SuperSport United 1-0 in the final.

Second choice Chiefs goalkeeper, Khuzwayo, has explained how he got his break into professional football from seemingly nowhere after Shakes Mashaba gave him a chance.

At a press conference ahead of Sunday's game, the 23-year-old said, "I came from 'nowhere' and coach Shakes Mashaba gave me an opportunity to play for the U23 National Team. Today I play for Chiefs. The guys know that this is their chance and they will be throwing everything at us. We are prepared for this one and some of the boys coming from the Chiefs Development will get a chance to show their abilities on Sunday."
