Kaizer Chiefs’ opponents for the Maize Cup have revealed their preparations for the weekend’s match.
Chiefs will play against ABC Motsepe League side Buya Msuthu in the first semi-final of the Maize Cup at James Motlatsi Stadium in Klerksdorp on Saturday.
The match is scheduled to start at 10:00. Chippa United will play against Free State Stars in the other semi-final at 12:00.
Chiefs are expected to give their new signings Khama Biliiat and Letlhogonolo Mirwa a run during the four-team tournament.
Speaking to the Siya crew, Buya Msuthu coach Kabelo Sibiya confirmed his team’s preparations for the match.
“We are in our third week of pre-season and we have some new players that we have been looking at. We could give them a run on Saturday in the Maize Cup. We will be playing a friendly match on Wednesday as part of our preparations for the Maize Cup,” said Sibiya.
“The boys are motivated for a chance to play against a team of Kaizer Chiefs’ calibre. As the technical team, we are working very hard to prepare well for that match. We have roped in a physical trainer in Jabu Mothibi who was previously with Orbit College FC. He’s taking the players through their paces,” confirmed the coach.
