Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to recover from their false start to the 2022/23 Premier Soccer League season when they host Maritzburg United at FNB Stadium on Tuesday.

Fresh from last Saturday's 1-0 defeat away at Royal AM, the Soweto giants are at home to try and win their first set of maximum points in this campaign.

Coach Arthur Zwane has handed Dillon Solomons and George Matlou their full debuts for Amakhosi.

Read how Chiefs line up against the Team of Choice.

  • Bruce Bvuma, Kaizer Chiefs, March 2022

    GOALKEEPER - Bruce Bvuma

    Bvuma conceded against Royal AM but did well to avoid further damage as their hosts were relentlessly attacking.

    He starts again ahead of Brandon Petersen and Itumeleng Khune.

  • Dillon Solomons, Kaizer Chiefs, June 2022

    RIGHT-BACK - Dillion Solomons

    The former Swallows star has replaced Njabulo Blom in the starting line-up as he makes his full debut for Chiefs.

  • Reeve Frosler, Kaizet Chiefs, August 2022

    LEFT-BACK - Reeve Frosler

    Naturally a right-back, Frosler has been Chiefs' number one left-back ahead of Sibusiso Mabiliso and Sifiso Hlanti.

    He will be out to deal with the threat from Maritzburg United's Brandon Theron.

  • Zitha Kwinika of Kaizer Chiefs.

    CENTRE-BACK - Zitha Kwinika

    Kwinika looked comfortable against Royal AM and appears to have already fitted in on his return to Naturena where he was a development player.

  •  Siyabonga Ngezana, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    CENTRE-BACK - Siyabonga Ngezana

    Ngezana is one of the players Zwane is familiar with after the two worked together from their days with the Chiefs development side.

    He was a bit shaky in the last game but has always started under Zwane since the end of last season.

  • Yusuf Maart Kaizer Chiefs


    Maart got off to an impressive start in his first game for Chiefs.

    He did everything to justify he was a good signing.

  • Lehlohonolo Matlou, Swallows FC, April 2022

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - George Matlou

    The lanky midfielder has filled the void left by Alexander Cole in the starting line-up.

  • Siyethemba Sithebe Kaizer Chiefs

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Siyethemba Sithebe

    His combination in midfield with Ngcobo was always a big threat against Royal AM.

    If the two improve their partnership tonight, Maritzburg could be in for a torrid evening.

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    RIGHT MIDFIELDER - Keagan Dolly

    Dolly was not at his best in the last game and might have disappointed Chiefs fans.

    He would be keen to up his game to the level he was last season when he scored seven league goals and made four assists.

  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    LEFT MIDFIELDER - Khama Billiat

    The Zimbabwean was switching between a central striker and midfielder with Ashley du Preez in the last game.

    Billiat is more effective playing behind the main striker with Dolly supporting him on the other wing.

  • Ashley Du Preez Kaizer Chiefs

    CENTRE-FORWARD - Ashley du Preez

    Du Preez will be keen to score his first-ever goal in Chiefs colours.

    With Amakhosi playing at home, it will be a big moment for the former Stellenbosch striker to warm the hearts of Chiefs fans at FNB Stadium.
