Kaizer Chiefs Player Ratings: Hlanti, Du Preez on target but debutant Saile Basomboli steals the show

Christian Saile Basomboli had an impressive debut for Kaizer Chiefs as Amakhosi returned to winning ways following their 2-0 victory over Royal AM on Sunday.

The Congolese striker showed glimpses of what he will offer the Glamour Boys, displaying great pace and power, while ending up with an assist for Chiefs who have looked blunt this season.

In what was a much-improved performance, especially in front of goal, Arthur Zwane’s charges scored for the first time this year, and also won their maiden game of 2023, to end their three-match losing streak.

Sifiso Hlanti headed in the opener from Keegan Dolly’s free-kick before Ashley du Preez connected well with Basomboli’s pass to make it 2-0.
