The Amakhosi are looking to register a first series of back-to-back PSL wins since they saw off SuperSport United in their previous outing

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has named his starting XI to face Swallows FC at the Dobsonville Stadium on Wednesday.

The Glamour Boys are hoping to secure a positive result after they struggled against numerically disadvantaged AmaZulu in the MTN8 Cup first-leg semi-final.

Here is how Chiefs are lining up for the local derby:

  • Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune August 2022

    Itumeleng Khune

    Khune is enjoying a consistent run of games, and as focus returns to the league, the experienced custodian keeps his place between the posts.

  • Reeve Frosler, Kaizet Chiefs, August 2022

    Dillon Solomons, who had made the right-back position his own, has been benched as Frosler makes a return.

  • Sifiso Hlanti, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Sifiso Hlanti

    His experience should come in handy as Chiefs look for a second consecutive PSL victory since beating SuperSport United.

  • Zitha Kwinika Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Zitha Kwinika

    He has built a reputation as an undroppable centre back for the Soweto giants and, going into the derby, his primary aim is to provide a solid performance at the back that will also result in a clean sheet.

  • Edmilson Dove, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022

    Once again, the Mozambican has been paired with Kwinika at the back after a solid partnership against AmaZulu.

  • Njabulo Blom Kaizer Chiefs September 2022

    Blom maintains his place in the starting team in what is seen as a growth of confidence and trust by the technical bench.

  • Yusuf Maart, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022

    He has never looked back since he was given his Chiefs debut and, with good midfield performances, Maart has made himself a key starter for Amakhosi over time.

  • Keagan Dolly & Ashley du Preez, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2022

    Keagan Dolly

    He helped the Glamour Boys secure a draw with Usuthu in the cup tie and, with that, he has been handed a start after being benched in the last two games.

    Meanwhile, Siyethemba Sithebe drops out of the starting XI.

  • Kgaogelo Sekgota of Kaizer Chiefs

    Another start for Sekgota as Chiefs are looking to return to league duties on a winning note.

  • Sibongiseni Mthethwa Stellenbosch Ashley Du Preez Kaizer Chiefs.jpg

    Ashley du Preez

    Another star who has not been spared by a restless fan base is Du Preez.

    As he continues to amass minutes, Du Preez should hope for improved performance and find the back of the net regularly to ease the mounting pressure.

  • Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana Kaizer Chiefs

    The Burundian should be buoyed up by a brace scored against SuperSport as Amakhosi host the local opponents.
