Kaizer Chiefs easily went past Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 last week, winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Ryan Moon, Bernard Parker and Joseph Molangoane.
“Never change a winning team” is the motto and that’s why coach Steve Komphela has decided to begin tonight’s league clash against Cape Town City with the same starting XI as against Arrows.
It means that Leonardo Castro and Siphelele Ntshangase will both get their second start since joining Amakhosi during the January transfer window.
Three players are still out injured – Dumsani Zuma (groin), George Maluleka (calf strain) and Gustavo Páez (hamstring).
Amakhosi and the Citizens have both collected 31 points from 20 outings, although Chiefs are one up, in fifth position, thanks to a better goal difference.
The encounter between Chiefs and Cape Town City will take place at FNB Stadium on Saturday evening (kick-off is at 20:15).
The referee is Chris Harrison.
