Mabotsa Selects Key Chiefs Players In Soweto Derby Showdown

A former Kaizer Chiefs defender has selected two stars who he believes could be possible match winners for Amakhosi against Orlando Pirates in this weekend’s Soweto Derby.   

The stage is set for the two giants of South African football to clash in Saturday’s sold-out Absa Premiership match for the all-important three points, as the 2019/20 season nears its end.

A win for Chiefs would take the pressure off Ernst Middendorp and his players and open the gap from the chasing pack, while for Josef Zinnbauer and his team, the thought of challenging for the title could become a reality. 

Former Chiefs defender, Isaac Mabotsa, believes that Samir Nurkovic and Khama Billiat could be the match winners for Amakhosi.

“From the side of Chiefs, I am looking at their striker Nurkovic (as a player to look out for). Another player – although he hasn’t been in top form that we know him for – is Khama Billiat. Mark my words, at any given time that guy can steal the show. Yes, I see some people are undermining him. Well, that’s how football is, it has its ups and downs. But mark my words, if he (Billiat) starts the game, Pirates will be in trouble,” said Mabotsa.  

For the Buccaneers, Mabotsa is wary of the threat posed by Gabadinho Mhango and Luvuyo Memela.
