Chiefs & Bay Starting XIs Confirmed

Kaizer Chiefs and Richards Bay have announced their starting line-ups for the DStv Premiership encounter at FNB Stadium this afternoon.

Chiefs will look to make it three league wins in a row for the first time this season. Two weeks ago, Amakhosi edged Polokwane City 1-0 away from home after beating Moroka Swallows in the previous game.

Interim coach Cavin Johnson has been in charge of five games, winning three and losing two, but he will aim to finish the year on a high with the Ephefeni Glamour Boys.

Meanwhile, the struggling Bay have lost two consecutive games coming to this match, including the Carling Knockout semi-final against Stellenbosch FC.

The KwaZulu-Natal-based side are six points clear of automatic relegation after Cape Town Spurs collected a 1-1 draw at AmaZulu on Friday night.

These two sides faced each other three times, with Chiefs winning twice in the league last season and Bay winning once and that was a cup match.

On-loan striker Jasond Gonzalez has received his second start for Amakhosi, while Ashley Du Preez, Tebogo Potsane and Dillan Solomons have returned to the bench.

Here is how they line up:

Chiefs XI: Bvuma, Hlanti, Dove, Msimango, Frosler, Maart, Castillo, Ngcobo, Mmodi, Saile, Gonzalez

Subs: Petersen, Ngcobo, Chivaviro, Du Preez, solomons, Zwane, Potsane, Mashiane, Shabalala
