Manyama, Mahlasela and Billiat lead the attack

Coach Ernst Middendorp has decided to go with an attack minded line-up for tonight’s Nedbank Cup final against TS Galaxy.

The German coach will play, as usual with three centre-backs. They are Kgotso Moleko, Daniel Cardoso and Teenage Hadebe.

In the midfield will be Bernard Parker (on the right wing), Willard Katsande, Dax Andrianarimana (the two holding midfielders) and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya on the left wing.

Up-front will be Lebogang Manyama, Kabelo Mahlasela and Khama Billiat.

Bruce Bvuma, meanwhile, is back in goal because Daniel Akpeyi, who was between the posts last week, is cup-tied.

The Nedbank Cup final between Chiefs and Galaxy will take place at a sold-out Moses Mabhida Stadium and will kick off at 19:00.

The referee is Abongile Tom, assisted by Athenkosi Ndongeni and Shaun Olive.
