There are a few scores to be settled in Saturday's Telkom Knockout Cup clash between Amakhosi and Buccaneers in Durban

  • Linda Mntambo of Orlando Pirates shields the ball ahead of Jarrod Moroole of Stellenbosch FC, October 2019

    Linda Mntambo

    The midfield maestro has regained his place in the Pirates starting line-up in recent weeks.

    Mntambo will be keen to prove he deserves to be a regular having picked up the Man of the Match award following their midweek victory over Highlands Park.

  • Dumisani Zuma, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2019

    Dumisani Zuma

    The speedy attacker has been mainly used as an impact player from the bench by Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp.

    Zuma will be hoping to produce an excellent performance which will help boost his chances of starting games for Amakhosi under the German coach.

  • Tshegofatso Mabasa, Orlando Pirates, September 2019

    Tshegofatso Mabasa

    The bulky forward has established himself as Pirates' first-choice striker this season.

    It will be Mabasa's maiden competitive Soweto Derby and top players are usually judged by their performances in such games and this should be a test the left-footed player will be eager to pass with distinction.

  • Njabulo Blom, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2019

    Njabulo Blom

    The promising defender-cum-midfielder is expected to start against Pirates in the absence of the injured Reeve Frosler.

    Blom caught the eye during Chiefs' recent 2-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns and this will be his chance to stake his claim for a regular place in the team's starting line-up.

  • Willard Katsande of Kaizer Chiefs challenged by Xola Mlambo of Orlando Pirates, July 2019

    Willard Katsande

    The veteran midfield maestro is set to start for Chiefs with Kearyn Baccus out nursing an injury.

    All eyes will be on Katsande, who has been criticised for being too inconsistent, to prove he remains an important player for the team by playing an instrumental role in helping Amakhosi win.
