CBL: Two Surprise Inclusions For Chiefs

There are two surprise inclusions in Kaizer Chiefs' final Carling Black Label starting line-up, while Orlando Pirates supporters have gone with the tried and tested for this weekend's pre-season clash. 

Sabelo Radebe and Lebohang Lesako have been included in Amakhosi's team to face the Buccaneers at Orlando Stadium on Sunday, 1 August.

The development products have previously featured in the DStv Diski Challenge side and will now get an opportunity to showcase their talents and give head coach Stuart Baxter something to think about ahead of the new season. Radebe and Lesako will play with Njabulo Blom and Kearyn Baccus in the midfield. 

Amakhosi supporters have chosen a 4-4-2 formation, with Khama Billiat and Samir Nurkovic playing together upfront. Itumeleng Khune has been selected as captain and will start in goal, with Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Mulomowandau Mathoho, Daniel Cardoso and Happy Mashiane as the four defenders in front of him. 

The Pirates supporters, meanwhile, have gone with a line-up similar to what head coach Josef Zinnbauer would be likely to select. Richard Ofori is back in goal after struggling with injury last season and will be protected by the back four of Wayde Jooste, Ntsikelelo Nyauza, Thulani Hlatshwayo and Innocent Maela. 

Fortune Makaringe, Ben Motshwari, Thabang Monare and Deon Hotto feature in the midfield, while Gabadinho Mhango and Thembinkosi will start upfront.
