The end of the international break sees Kaizer Chiefs welcome Polokwane. Futaa takes a shot at the expected team news.
As far as that awful football consequence we call injuries, Limpopo’s finest Ramahlwe Mphahlele and the exciting kid, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, will be absent.
Two more key players may also just watch tonight’s game. There are reasons to doubt Itumeleng Khune and Khama Billiat.
While Khune has fully recovered from his shoulder injury, coach Ernst Middendorp has all but spelled it out that Khune needs to earn his place. Walking straight back into the team isn’t exactly going to happen. Will he wait for Daniel Akpeyi to get injured or make a mistake?
Why is Billiat a doubt? Well, the Zimbabwean forward had a whirlwind of a week. Not 100% fit, Billiat took a flight to his homeland to represent the Warriors. The event was a key World Cup qualifier against Somalia. The 28-year-old almost single-handedly won it for Zimbabwe with a stunning injury-time finish.
But Middendorp could not hide his displeasure.
The 60-year-old coach felt Billiat’s risky international involvement was ‘irritating’ and dangerous for his injury recovery. Don't be surprised if Billiat misses Polokwane.
Line up prediction:
Akpeyi, Frosler, Mathoho, Cardoso, Ntiya-Ntiya, Maluleka, Katsande, Manyama, Parker, Kambole, Nurkovic.
The match is set for 18:00 at the huge and iconic Soccer City Stadium.
