Our Chiefs expected line-up for Celtic: Billiat out

The mighty Amakhosi are out to maintain their Absa Premiership 10-point lead against Bloemfontein Celtic tonight.

Chiefs are unbeaten in seven league games with 13 goals scored and only two into their own net. Visitors Phunya Sele Sele have also been quietly getting their job done. Celtic have not lost in five games where they’ve scored seven times and conceded four.

Can Chiefs make it eight league wins and with Khama Billiat out injured? How will they line-up?

Ernst Middendorp’s side 4-0 crushing of Stellenbosch suggests we will see more or less the same set-up. But will fan-favourite Dumisani Zuma start or is he really an impact footballer?

Itumeleng Khune remains out, while Erick Mathoho is a doubt. The left-back area is Chiefs’ most-rotated position and therefore tricky to predict. The central midfield two remains evenly shared between Willard Katstande, George Maluleka and Kearyn Baccus.

Chiefs predicted line-up for Celtic:

Akpeyi - Cardoso, Ngezana, Sasman - Frosler, Katsande, Baccus, Ntiya-Ntiya - Manyama, Zuma, Nurkovic.

Catch the match from 20:00 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban.
