    In seven matches, Bvuma – who was yellow-carded in their last game against Sekhukhune United - has kept four clean sheets and maintains his place between the posts as Brandon Peterson replaces Daniel Akpeyi on the bench.

    As injury-hit Amakhosi hope to conclude the season on a high against struggling opponents, Blom starts in his usual position at right-back.

    Chiefs’ technical bench has handed the left-back a chance to make his 22nd PSL appearance of the season.

  • Terrence Mashego, Cape Town City & Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Kaizer Chiefs, February 2022 Backpagepix

    Ramahlwe Mphahlele

    The 32-year-old provided an assist during their first-round duel against Amaswaiswai.

    Against Sekhukhune, he scored and got yellow carded and should hope to finish the season with yet another clean sheet as he operates at the heart of the defence.

    Njabulo Ngcobo

    Recently, Ngcobo has mostly been benched, but with Siyabonga Ngezana out injured, he returns to the first team.

    Sabelo Radebe

    Although he was announced by the club as one of the ill players, he will be involved as a starter in the PSL’s finale.

  • Phathutshedzo Nange, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Nange was ruled out of the Sekhukhune United's game due to suspension, but he returns to take charge of the midfield roles.

    The unavailability of Cole Alexander – who is suspended – has forced the technical bench to fall back on Baccus, who was not in the matchday squad in the Chiefs’ last outing.

    As the Glamour Boys hope to do a season double over their Soweto opponents, Parker is expected to play an important role, especially in the attacking half.

  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs & Nyiko Mobbie, Sekhukhune United, May 2022Backpagepix

    Khama Billiat

    He scored twice – in the first and in the second half – to claim a brace against Swallows in November 2021.

    As he operates in the usual advanced position for the Soweto giants, the Zimbabwean’s priority should be to lead his side to another victory in the derby.

  • Happy Mashiane, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2021Backpagepix

    Happy Mashiane

    Mashiane has been drafted as a starter as Keagan Dolly – the scorer of the third goal in the first round game – is unavailable due to an injury.
