Pirates meet Chiefs in Durban and the clash that is as big as a Telkom Knockout quarter-final game at Moses Mabhida.
Ernst Middendorp’s Chiefs are the most feared team in the land right now. Amakhosi lead the Absa Premiership with five points and have marked double wins over the league’s top sides such as Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City. The big inspiration has been Middendorp’s tactical craft and work ethic.
Pirates’ coach Rhulani Mokwena was a man under incredible pressure... until Wednesday’s controversial win over Highlands Park. The 43-year-coach now comes into today’s game with lesser stress.
A win in today’s game for either coach will set-up a last four game against the likes of Maritzburg United and the winner between Chippa United vs Mamelodi Sundowns in tomorrow’s last eight battle.
Pirates coach Mokwena has made one big call. Kabelo Dlamini has been given a start in Pirates’ attack.
