Kaizer Chiefs face Sekhukhune on Wednesday needing three precious PSL points. How will they line up?
KAIZER CHIEFS: PREDICTING THEIR XI VS BABINA NOKO
Khune; Frosler, Msimango, Ditlhokwe, Dove; Mthethwa, Castillo, Mdantsane; Du Preez, Gonzalez, Mmodi.
This lineup shows five changes. Out come Petersen, Hlanti, Maart, Matlou and Potsane. In come Khune, Dove, Mthethwa, Mdantsane and Gonzalez.
RUTHLESSNESS NEEDED FROM NTSEKI
Rather than opt for a conventional number 9, Molefi Ntseki picked Ashley Du Preez through the middle with Pule Mmodi and Tebogo Potsane flanking him. Perhaps you could say the experiment worked to some extent, with Du Preez scoring for the Glamour Boys, but what’s the point of having both Christian Saile and Efmamjjasond Gonzalez on the bench? Potsane might be the man to get the axe. Mduduzi Mdantsane also deserves a recall in midfield, but at whose expense? George Matlou is the obvious candidate, but even Yusuf Maart’s place isn’t safe. Edmilson Dove’s relative youth and extra versatility also mean he should get a recall at left-back at the expense of Sifiso Hlanti. Meanwhile, Brandon Petersen has received public backing from his boss but perhaps it’s time for him to come out of the media firing line too after his costly error against the Brazilians.
Meanwhile, hit up James Freemantle for more insights, analysis and love for the beautiful game of football.
