The Soweto giants are back in the Western Cape but this time around for a different competition

Kaizer Chiefs will be keen to ease their inconsistent run in the Premier Soccer League when they play Stellenbosch in an MTN quarter-final match at Danie Craven Stadium on Sunday.

Five days after losing 2-0 to Cape Town City in a Premier Soccer League, Amakhosi would also want to banish the demons haunting them in the Western Cape by beating Stellenbosch.

The Soweto giants were last crowned champions of any competition when they lifted the PSL title in 2015 but they now bid for the MTN which they last won in 2014.

  • Itumeleng Khune Warriors

    GOALKEEPER - Itumeleng Khune

    With Bruce Bvuma and Brandon Petersen a bit shaky in recent games, Khune has been selected to start.

  • Sifiso Hlanti, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    LEFT-BACK - Sifiso Hlanti

    The veteran defender plays his first official match since November 2021.

    He has been thrown a Reeve Frosler is injured and new signing Edmilson Dove is yet to be issued with a work permit.

  • Zitha Kwinika Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    CENTRE-BACK - Zitha Kwinika

    Kwinika has participated in every minute of Chiefs' games this season.

    He would be hoping to use his experience to tone down the rate Amakhosi have been conceding goals.

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

    CENTRE-BACK - Njabulo Ngcobo

    Zwane is still searching for a stable pairing in central defence and has settled for Kwinika and Ngcobo in the last two games.

    He would be hoping the two are now used to each other to form a solid wall at the back.

  • George Matlou, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Lehlogonolo Matlou

    With Yusuf Maart out suspended, Matlou steps in to start his second match in Chiefs colours.

    RIGHT-BACK - Dillon Solomons

    Solomons has started in Chiefs' last four games and continues in the line-up.

  • Kgaogelo Sekgota, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Kgaogelo Sekgota

    The 25-year-old has been in the line-up in the last two games as Zwane is trying to establish a combination between Sekgota, Keagan Dolly and Khama Billiat.

    Sekgota is, however, yet to score a goal and has provided just one assist in the four games he has played this season.

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    RIGHT FORWARD - Keagan Dolly

    Zwane has had to come out in the media to try and defend Dolly whose game is yet to reach the best level this season.

    The diminutive forward is keen to pick himself up and be influential against Stellenbosch.

  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    LEFT FORWARD - Khama Billiat

    Another player under fire to improve his game this season.

    Billiat's most notable contribution this season was an assist against Maritzburg United.

    CENTRE-FORWARD - Ashley du Preez

    After missing the last three games due to injury, Du Preez is back to lead Chiefs' attack against his former employers.
