Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs are back on the grass this afternoon as Cape Town City arrive in Soweto hungry for three points.
Amakhosi return this afternoon after a swaggering 3-0 win over Highlands Park at FNB midweek - while the Citizens squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with AmaZulu in Cape Town.
- Chiefs News
Bad news for City: Amakhosi’s man of the season Samir Nurkovic will return from suspension. Khama Billiat has not been reported as fit yet - while Itumeleng Khune was on the bench on Wednesday.
- City News
The Citizen’s superb central midfielder Roland Putsche is out suspended - while Thamsanwa Mkhize will also remain in the Western Cape due to suspension.
- Players to watch
Chiefs’ Nurkovic is one of the league’s top scorers with eight goals and two assists in 16. He is a defender’s nightmare with his relentless movement, physicality and aerial aggression.
Kermit Erasmus’ key attribute is not his eye for goal. The Port Elizbeth-born player is one hell of a mentally strong footballer: always demanding 100% from his teammates and chasing every ball. Erasmus, like Nurkovic, has the same number of eight goals & two assists in 16 games.
- Chiefs predicted lineup
Akpeyi, Moleko, Mathoho, Cardoso, Ntiya-Ntiya - Katsande, Maluleka, Baccus - Manyama, Castro, Nurkovic.
- City predicted lineup
Leeuwenburgh, Martin, Fielies, Potouridis, Edmilson - Nodada, Mokeke, Makola - Ralani, Norodien, Erasmus.
