Stuart Baxter has handed Bukenya his debut while Josta Dladla has been given the responsibility to lead AmaKhosi against Celtic
Goalkeeper Patrick Tinyemb is the notable absentee from the Celtic side with former Sundowns keeper Thembalethu Moses given a rare start.
On the other hand, AmaKhosi are without captain Itumeleng Khune, Tsepo Masilela, Bernard Parker and Reneilwe Letsholonyane who are away with Bafana. Hence the likes of Brilliant Khuzwayo and Simphiwe Mtsweni start for this afternoon’s Macufe Cup.
As expected, Ivan Bukenya gets to start at the back with Eric Mathoho while Josta Dladla has been given the armband to lead AmaKhosi.
Celtic starting line-up: Moses, Leonard, Motlhaping (C), Ndlovu, Mahoa, Duiker, Nyatama, Ntanga, Jooste, Mutuma and Lamola.
Chiefs starting line-up: Khuzwayo, Moleko, Mathoho, Bukenya, Mtsweni, Dladla (C), Baloyi, Nkosi, Rusike, Masango and Nkhatha.
