๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆโœŒ๐Ÿพโ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ Chiefs vs Pirates line-ups: Bucs set a false nine attack, Amakhosi make eight changes

Rhulani Mokwena has named a fascinating starting eleven to battle Kaizer Chiefs in Soweto today - while Ernst Middendorp returns eight players from their midweek rest.

Bucs need a first win in three games to move up to fifth position. Mokwena's men will emerge with an attacking back-four that features the speed of Paseka Mako at left back and Abel Mabaso on the right. While Justice Chabalala will start on the bench and Happy Jele suspended.

Xola Mlambo gets a rare start in the centre alongside a midfield three of Ben Motshwari and Fortune Makaringe.

The attack line will feature three attacking midfielders without an out & out number nine. Namely Thembinkosi Lorch, Vincent Pule and Gabadinho Mhango.

While Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp smartly made seven changes in Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Chippa United, the 60-year-old has made eight this afternoon for freshness and fitness.

Out: Bvuma, Moleko, Ngezana, Zulu, Zuma, Kambole, Parker and Kambole.
In: Akpeyi, Mathoho, Sasman, Frosler, Maluleka, Manyama, Castro and Billiat.

Full line ups:

Chiefs: Akpeyi, Frosler, Mathoho, Cardoso, Sasman, Katsande, Maluleka, Billiat, Castro, Nurkovic.

Subs: Bvuma, Kambole, Parker, Zuma, Ngezana, Ntiya-Ntiya, Blom.

Pirates: 30. Sandilands, 23. Maela, 5. Nyauza (c), 44. Mabaso, 27. Motshwari, 20. Mlambo, 15. Makaringe, 29. Mako, 3. Lorch, 45. Pule, 7. Mhango

Subs: 40. Mpontshane, 18. Chabalala, 8. Ndlovu, 32. Mntambo, 16. Mabasa, 17. Mulenga, 12. Shonga.
