🇿🇼👬 Mapeza’s Chippa official debut line-up: Moyo brothers start

Norman Mapeza is moments away from his official Chippa United debut and the stubborn Bloemfontein Celtic are in the way.

The former FC Platinum double-league champion had to sit out the club’s preceding game due to a delayed work permit registration.

Chippa United, known as the Chilly Boys, are tonight looking at a Telkom Knockout quarter-final progression and are at home in East London.

Mapeza's selection has seen the former Warriors international start with two of his trusted and well-known ex-players. The ex Platinum brothers Evis & Kelvin will command the back four alongside the 19-year-old Gregory Dimonds at right-back, as well as the iron-like Burundian defender Frédéric Nsabiyumva.

On the opposite side, Ronald Pfumbidzai will watch the game from home. The workhorse left-back is suspended after picking a third yellow card against Black Leopards.

Starting line-ups:

Chippa: 30. Tignyemb, 17. Damons, 47. Nsabiyumva, 20. K.Moyo, 14. E.Moyo, 44. Komane, 10. Mashaba, 12. Malepe, 7. Mbenyane, 8. Rakhale, 19. R.Manzini.

Subs: 1. Mazibuko, 40. Twala, 22. Modisane, 13. Maphangule, 11. Maziya, 32. Lentjies, 2, Masalesa.

Celtic: 16. Mabokgwane, 2. Tani, 3. Mahashe, 22. Rikhotso, 26. Ngobeni, 35. Baloyi, 13. Luthuli, 18. Mashikinya, 10. Mabena, 27. Tchilimbou, 21. Letsoalo.

Subs: 31. Chaine, 23. Mogakwe, 9. Sera, 6. Kobedi, 24. Lingwati, 12. Maema, 7. Maloisane.

A win for Mapeza’s side could set-up a tasty quarter-final clash with the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates or Mamelodi Sundowns. The last eight draw will be conducted live at tonight’s venue soon after the final whistle.
