Two Out For Chiefs Clash, Tinkler Identifies Amakhosi Problem

There certainly isn’t a full squad of players to pick from when Kaizer Chiefs host Maritzburg United this weekend, but Eric Tinkler has another worry to think about.

Check out six individuals that could return to haunt Maritzburg in the gallery above!

The Glamour Boys and the Team of Choice will lock horns on tomorrow evening as Chiefs look to keep their slim chances at the title alive and Maritzburg seek to take a big step towards safety.

Tinkler has Brian Onyango out due to injury and Rushine de Reuck serving the second game of a two-match ban, while Ernst Middendorp has plenty of players still on the sidelines on the way back to full fitness.

It’s the fit players that Tinkler is wary of though, especially given the fact that five of them know all about the setup over in Pietermaritzburg.

With five former players - Philani Zulu, Ryan Moon, Virgil Vries, Bhongolwethu Jayiya and Mario Booysen – all part of the Glamour Boys setup now, as well as their head coach being with Maritzburg in the past, Tinkler knows that they will be aware of where they can punish them.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Tinkler said, “That’s the conundrum to be honest… Ernst knows our formation quite well, how the team plays. Although I have brought my own element to it - with a slight difference I think.

“We need to continue believing in the structure and the formation. Tactically every game is different. Roles and responsibilities change. You see where the weaknesses are in the opposition and you look to try and exploit that with structural changes in terms of the formation.”

The two teams will face off at FNB Stadium at 18h00.
