    The Bafana Bafana goalkeeper has been selected ahead of Brandon Petersen, who is on the substitutes bench for the matchday one fixture.

    Reeve Frosler

    With Sifiso Hlanti still fighting to regain full match fitness, Frosler has been deployed at left-back, a position he took charge of for the better part of last season.

  • Zitha Kwinika of Kaizer Chiefs.Backpagepix.

    Zitha Kwinika

    As a sign of growing trust from the technical bench in the academy product, Kwinika has been named as a starter at the heart of the Chiefs defence.

  • Siyabonga Ngezana, Kaizer Chiefs & Gaston Sirino, Mamelodi Sundowns, May 2022Backpagepix

    Siyabonga Ngezana

    As Chiefs will be looking for a clean sheet and a win, Ngezana will keep a close eye on Royal AM’s forwards as he partners Kwinika at the back.

  • Yusuf Maart Kaizer Chiefs.Backpagepix.

    Maart has been handed his debut for the Soweto giants after joining them from Sekhukhune United.

  • Knox Mutizwa Golden Arrows Njabulo Blom Kaizer Chiefsbackpagepix

    Njabulo Blom

    One of the stars that carry the hopes of the fans and, of course, expectations are high on him to be a stellar performer this season. 

    He needs a solid performance against Royal AM in order to begin the season as a motivated midfielder.

  • Cole Alexander, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021Backpagepix

    The experienced midfielder has been selected as Amakhosi hope to harvest a positive result against an ambitious Durban-based outfit.

  • Siyethemba Sithebe Kaizer Chiefs.Backpagepix.

    Siyethemba Sithebe

    The former AmaZulu attacking midfielder has been drafted into the starting team ahead of Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, who is benched.

  • Khama Billiat Kaizer ChiefsBackpagepix

    Khama Billiat

    The Zimbabwean remained at Chiefs despite an overhaul of the squad that saw a number of his former experienced teammates leave.

    Apart from the leadership roles he ought to play as an experienced star, Billiat is expected to be involved massively in the goal-hunting mission.

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2021Backpagepix

    Keagan Dolly

    Royal AM defenders must keep Dolly in constant check as he can pose a threat at any time should he be given too much room.

  • Ashley du Preez Kaizer Chiefs.Backpagepix.

    Ashley du Preez

    Another new signing who has been handed a debut.

    Du Preez leads the Chiefs attack and a goal against the opponents would probably be a desirable target as he starts life with the Naturena club.
