Kaizer Chief’s talented winger Ashley Du Preez could be returning to the starting line-up for their upcoming clash against Usuthu after struggling with a flu infection. The speedy 26-year-old has been in fine form for Amakhosi this season, having scored twice for the club this season.
COACH MOLEFI NTSEKI’S PRAISE FOR THE WINGER
Coach Molefi Ntseki has been impressed with du Preez’s performances so far this season, praising his pace and skill on the ball. “Ashley has been very good for us,” he said. “He’s quick, he’s got great technique, and he’s always a threat going forward. “The best acquisition we have brought to the club.”
The winger’s absence from the starting XI was felt by Kaizer Chiefs in their recent match against TS Galaxy, where they lost 1-0. Ntseki will be hoping that du Preez’s possible return to the squad will inject some much-needed attacking impetus into his team, especially against Usuthu, who are also struggling to score this season.
DU PREEZ’S IMPRESSIVE FORM THIS SEASON
Du Preez’s return to form has been a welcome boost for Kaizer Chiefs, who are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2022/23 campaign. With his pace and skill on the wing, du Preez has the potential to be a game-changer for the team, and his performances so far this season have shown that he’s up to the task.
However, the question remains whether Chiefs should be relying too heavily on one player. While du Preez has been impressive, the team will need contributions from all areas of the field if they want to mount a serious challenge for the title this season.
Regardless, the possible return of Ashley du Preez to the starting line-up will be a significant boost for Kaizer Chiefs, and fans will be hoping to see him in top form against Usuthu. If he can replicate his early season form, there is no telling what he can accomplish for the team this season going forward.
Kaizer chiefs face off against AmaZulu FC on Saturday evening at the FNB stadium. Kick-off is at 17:30 CAT.
