Amakhosi have a last 16 Nedbank Cup encounter against second division dreamers The Magic FC. The Nedbank Cup is the South African giants’ last shot at silverware this season, having missed out on the MTN8, Telkom Knockout and the CAF Confederation Cup - while the Absa Premiership looks rather way impossible.

Coach Ernst Middendorp has dropped Khama Billiat and Willard Katsande, while Ryan Moon and Siphelele Ntshangase stand out as the rare starters.

Line up:

44. Bvuma, 18. Moleko, 20. Hadebe, 4. Cardoso, 19. Mashiane, 12. Maluleka, 27. Ekstein, 10. Ntshangase, 7. Moon, 25. Parker, 8. Castro.

Subs: 16. Vries, 36. Ntiya-Ntiya, 2. Mphahlele, 28. Zuma, 22. Zulu, 6. Andrianarimanana, 11. Billiat.

A win for Chiefs will book a place in the Quarter Finals alongside the likes of Cape Town City, Chippa United, Cape Umoya United, Golden Arrows and Bloemfontein Celtic.
