11 Potential Soweto Derby Debutants

Orlando Pirates & Kaizer Chiefs Could Both Have Soweto Derby Debutants

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 02, 2018 07:00 AM

This weekend will see Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs go head-to-head in one of the most important Soweto Derbies in recent years. We look at the players who could potentially make a debut in a game which is one of the biggest on the continent.  

Take a look at some Soweto Derby debutants in the gallery above

Pirates and Chiefs sit in second and third place in the Absa Premiership going into Saturday’s game, with both teams knowing that a defeat against their biggest rivals could knock them out of the title race. 

The Soweto giants are still four and five points behind league leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns, and a victory for either side would give their trophy aspirations a real boost.

With both teams having had a busy transfer window last month as they sought to bolster their squads, Milutin Sredojevic and Steve Komphela have numerous players who could witness the derby up close for the first time.

For the Buccaneers, they have players such as Jackson Mabokgwane, Marshall Munetsi, and Lyle Foster who have yet to face off against the Amakhosi during their time at Pirates, with new signings, Augustine Mulenga, Xola Mlambo and Justin Shonga hoping to have a chance on Saturday.

At Chiefs, they have the likes of Leonardo Castro and Siphelele Ntshangase who were signed in January that could potentially make their first venture onto the field in South Africa’s biggest game, while Teenage Hadebe, Bhongo Jayiya and Dumisani Zuma all missed the first two games due to absence or injury.  

Which players do you think should definitely start for your team in the Soweto Derby?

@PHAZAMISA AKA NGOZI THE RETURN Man let me put you out of your misery Sundowns and super sport were victorious with those big score margins because pirates was at its lowest and lacking confidence if you take a look closely most of those players who played those matches are either released or frozen out of the squad eg Gcaba(Loaned) , Mahamutsa (loaned), Gabuza(benched) Matlaba( benched) Makola (benched) Riyaard (loaned), Sandilands ( benched) Rackale (released) just to name a few, so half of those players haven't played under Micho so this is a new and rejuvenated Piretes Side with a formidable front Three that will be giving Chiefs defenders nightmares if i were you I'd be Warming my Orange Double Decker Bus to stop Piretes Attacks # Up the bucks.

Since when chiefs ever scored even five goals vs pirates?All I know for now is; 1*Sundowns fans don't want see any of the Soweto teams moving up,as they feel the heat and izigi zendoda. 2*Chief are as well jerlousy of swing pirates moving up on their expense. 3*Pirates are not ready to let Chiefs jump frog over them.So is a matter of jerlousy that make people talk nyakanyaka here.But hey boy,football have all the answers you need without jerlousy,just be patient until tomorrow @17:15.As for myself,I will respect what football will give me.#Derby is tomorrow.#UP THE BUXS.
