Arthur Zwane’s Kaizer Chiefs are already under heavy pressure after losing on day one against Royal AM at a throbbing Chatsworth Stadium last weekend.
- Bruce Bvuma and Zitha Kwinika to definitely start in goal and in central defence, thanks to their glimmering performances last weekend.
- Zwane is expected to change his midfield from three to two midfielders: We predict Yusuf Maart and Siyethemba Sithebe in the double six.
- With the midfield changing to two midfielders. Zwane could therefore set a number 10 to start. The name could be Nkosingiphile Ngcobo.
- Two of Chiefs’ fast-running new signings Dillan Solomons and Ashley Du Preez are expected to deliver a real show on the bigger pitch that is the FNB. There’s plenty of grass to run there.
- So Maritzburg United have a new coach in John Maduka. The Malawian loves to set tight defence in his teams. We expected the visitors to be a bit rigid but it won’t be easy on a big field like that.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 19:30.
The fixtures are coming in waves. Kaizer Chiefs host Maritzburg United at the FNB Stadium. Here are five things we expect from the game.
