Hunt keeps the same team against the Birds

Amakhosi are in action this evening in a Soweto Derby against newly promoted Swallows FC in a DStv Premiership clash.

Chiefs are fresh from a 2-2 draw against Golden Arrows and Swallows also drew their last DStv Premiership match against TS Galaxy on Saturday.

Coach Gavin Hunt has decided not to make any changes as he keeps the same team that played against Arrows

Captain Itumeleng Khune will keep his position in goal.

Siyabonga Ngezana will partner Daniel Cardoso in central defence. Philani Zulu will be stationed on the left of the defence, and Ramahlwe Mphahlele on right as they try to keep Swallows’ attackers at bay.

Willard Katsande will again work with Nkosingiphile Ngcobo in midfield. They will be supported by  Kgotso Moleko  on the right of the midfield and  Lebogang Manyama on the left.

After scoring a brace in the last game, Leonardo Castro will team up with the provider of the two goals he scored on Saturday, Khama Billiat.

This evening’s referee is Masixole Bambiso. His assistants will be Lubabalo Pitsha and Ramario Phiri. The game’s fourth official is Bongani Mnguni.

The DStv Premiership match Kaizer Chiefs and Swallows FC will kick-off at 19:30 at Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto. Due to Covid-19 regulations, no spectators will be allowed in the stadium.
