LATEST AMAKHOSI TEAM NEWS
The Glamour Boys picked up their first win of the season last time out, a 2-1 success over Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-finals thanks to goals from Ashley du Preez and Edson Castillo. Heading for Mbombela, Molefi Ntseki will be without Keagan Dolly, Happy Mashiane and Ranga Chivaviro. Dolly suffered a serious knee injury towards the end of last season forcing him to undergo surgery. Mashiane is yet to feature this term, while Chivaviro is still settling into life at Chiefs.

WHERE IS CHIVAVIRO?
Head coach Molefi Ntseki earlier indicated Ranga Chivaviro was not quite ready to start and he could miss out on Sunday’s clash. Fortunately for Ntseki and co, Ashley Du Preez has hit hit straps with two goals in his last two outings. Meanwhile, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe is a major doubt after sustaining an injury against City but should be okay. His central defensive partner Spiwe Given Msimango plays for the first time against his old club since a switch to Naturena.
Can the Glamour Boys pick up all three points against an improving TS Galaxy side? Let us know in the comments. Kickoff from Mbombela is at 3pm on Sunday 20 August.
