HLANTI WALKING A SUSPENSION TIGHTROPE
Veteran left-back Sifiso Hlanti is one booking away from a suspension after accumulating three yellow cards already this term. Ntseki will be relieved that he escaped a booking against Stellenbosch so he’s available for the MTN8 semi-final first leg with Sundowns. However, the risk of suspension remains with a busy schedule on the horizon. Chiefs are not stocked in that position, so Ntseki will need to take Hlanti out of the firing line at some stage or another.

KAIZER CHIEFS ARE GETTING SERIOUS
After two league wins on the bounce, both accompanied by clean sheets, the mood is improving in the Glamour Boys camp. Next up is a massive task against the Brazilians, but they come into it in good form. Chiefs were efficient in their win at Stellenbosch, scoring two goals with their three shots on target. Pule Mmodi has scored three goals in his last two outings for the club.
