Kaizer Chiefs will be without their top Bafana Bafana players when they take on the Nedbank Ke Yona team at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday

The AmaKhosi needs to give their players a rest ahead of a taxing Caf Champions League campaign coming up, and with some of them having already participated at Chan for South Africa.

Chiefs assistant coach Doctor Khumalo told Goal that they don't want to overload their players with extra games, hence they will use some of their senior players together with players from their development ranks.
"We respect this game so much and that's why we are taking it seriously. I know people will expect us to field our full team, but we have a programme in place and the plan is to use some of our young players who are the future of Kaizer Chiefs," Khumalo told Goal.

"But we will be going into the game looking for a win," Khumalo told Goal.
Meanwhile the Ke Yona team coach Ephraim "Shakes" Mashaba also promised a good game, saying that his players are motivated to play a team of Chiefs' calibre.
"We have been looking forward to this game for almost a year and the players are ready to step into the field of play and show the country that we have talent," Mashaba told Goal.

"If the talented is nurtured we can go a long way in improving the football standard in our country and this game gives the players the platform to show what they can do. We want to win this game and the players know that," the national Under-20 coach Mashaba told Goal.
