After they dropped more points against AmaZulu, Amakhosi are in action again as they look to get back to winning ways

Coach Arthur Zwane has named Kaizer Chiefs starting XI to face Marumo Gallants in a Premier Soccer League match on Sunday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

The Naturena side is without a win in their last two PSL games, putting themselves under immense pressure as they take on Gallants.

A win from their away engagement will go a long way in helping them move up the ladder.

Keagan Dolly returns to the starting XI after he was dropped in the last game, while Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, who made his debut against AmaZulu, will wait for his full debut as he is benched again.

How Chiefs line up:

  •  Itumeleng Khune Kaizer Chiefs August 2022

    Itumeleng Khune

    The experienced keeper registered a clean sheet upon returning to league action for Amakhosi.

    Coupled with his heroics against Stellenbosch in the MTN8, the coaches have shown trust in him as he starts once more.

  • Dillon Solomons, Kaizer Chiefs & Siyanda Msani, Richards Bay, August 2022

    Dillon Solomons

    The right-back has been a consistent first-teamer under Zwane.

    Although he missed a penalty in the goalless draw against Usuthu, he has maintained his place as the Soweto giants look to return to winning ways.

  • Sifiso Hlanti Gaston Sirino

    Sifiso Hlanti

    Having been sidelined by a long-term injury, Hlanti has shown a hunger to fight for his place in the starting XI since his involvement against Stellies.

    A start at left back gives him another chance to prove why he still has a lot to offer for Amakhosi.

  • Zitha Kwinika Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Zitha Kwinika

    Being an undoubted starter for Chiefs, Kwinika, at the centre of the defense - will hope to protect Khune who is looking for a second season’s clean sheet.

  • Yanela Mbuthuma of Richards Bay challenged by Njabulo Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Njabulo Ngcobo

    Ngcobo’s partnership with Kwinika is growing stronger and both are looking more stable after each game they are drafted together at the back.

  • Yusuf Maart Kaizer Chiefs

    Yusuf Maart

    A new signing that has seamlessly fitted into Zwane’s first team plans.

    Maart, as he has shown the ability to do so, must produce top midfield performance to give the Glamour Boys an upper hand in that area.

  • Siyethemba Sithebe Kaizer Chiefs junior Leandro Mendieta Stellenbosch.jpg

    Siyethemba Sithebe

    Together with Maart, Sithebe has been given starting roles whenever they are available.

  • George Matlou, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022

    George Matlou

    Matlou starts ahead of Nkosingiphile Ngcobo – who is missing from the matchday squad - again.

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Keagan Dolly

    Dolly was dropped in their game against AmaZulu before he was introduced in the second half for Khama Billiat.

    He returns and, with Billiat missing, goal-scoring expectations are high for him as they face Gallants away from home.

  • Kgaogelo Sekgota of Kaizer Chiefs

    Kgaogelo Sekgota

    Sekgota has been started again as the Chiefs’ technical bench is experimenting with ways of making their attacking department sharper.

  • Sibongiseni Mthethwa Stellenbosch Ashley Du Preez Kaizer Chiefs.jpg

    Ashley du Preez

    Du Preez could not find a way past AmaZulu’s defense for the 70 minutes he was on the pitch.

    Will he get his name on the scoresheet as Amakhosi look for a morale-boosting victory?
