Chiefs Changes Chosen Not Forced

Steve Komphela’s decision to drop Siphiwe Tshabalala, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Siboniso Gaxa and Camaldine Abraw last night, wasn’t one that was forced.

Soweto Derby: Stick Or Twist

It was a fresh looking Amakhosi XI that started against, and beat, Golden Arrows in last night’s Absa Premiership clash, with the adapted 4-5-1 formation looking promising as Chiefs romped to a 3-1 victory.

Some heads were turned as captain, Tshabalala, as well as Gaxa were dropped to the bench, while Letsholonyane and Abraw didn’t make the matchday squad at all.

The clash proved to be the first time that neither Shabba nor Yeye featured in a Glamour Boys league game for the first time since March 2012, that game, coincidentally, was also against Abafana Bes’thende.

With Komphela bringing in the likes of Hendrick Ekstein, Kgotso Moleko and Lucky Baloyi, all 26 or younger, it was thought that the senior players may have developed knocks, however the Siya crew has since been informed that all four players were fully fit and available for selection.

This weekend will see Chiefs take on Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout semifinal Soweto Derby, and only when the starting XI for that game is released will it be known whether the Amakhosi skipper and his teammates were dropped or rested for the Pirates clash.

Meanwhile, Siyanda Xulu is back available for selection after recovering from his ankle injury to give the Chiefs coach another option in the centre of his defence.
