PSL: Kaizer Chiefs v Black Leopards Preview

Soccer players on a pitch

Kaizer Chiefs will look to get back to winning ways in the Premiership when they meet an unpredictable Black Leopards in Wednesday's clash at FNB Stadium.




Chiefs come into the contest having beaten SuperSport United 1-0 in a Telkom Knockout quarter-final on Sunday, however, are winless in the league during their previous three matches.

In their previous clash in the PSL, the Glamour Boys suffered a 2-1 defeat to Orlando Pirates and have dropped to seventh in the standings on 14 points, six behind leaders Bidvest Wits.

Meanwhile, Leopards have started slowly on their return to the top flight with nine points from nine matches, though they did hold Chiefs to a 1-1 draw after extra time in their TKO Round-of-16 tie on 21 October.

As such, coach Joel Masutha is upbeat about his side's chances of beating Amakhosi. He told Times Live: "We are confident we can get a result even though they'll have almost all of their players back from injury and they won't be able to use that as an excuse.

"But for us it is even easier to play against a full-strength Chiefs side because we know all of them. We are going for the result.

"Whoever they put in the side will be quality. But that doesn't mean we won't be going there to take Chiefs on."

In team news, Joseph Molangoane is out with a long term injury while Wiseman Meyiwa is a doubt after recently being involved in a car accident. Lebogang Manyama is also doubtful due to a fractured elbow.

Meanwhile, Leopards have reported no notable injury concerns. Wednesday's action gets underway from 19:30 in Johannesburg.
