Chiefs Announce Starting XI

Cape Town Spurs and Kaizer Chiefs have announced their starting lineups for the for the last fixture of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership campaign at DHL Stadium.

Already-relegated Spurs aim to end the league on a high note and give their support something to be smile about. Ernst Middendorp’s side fought tooth and nail in their bid to keep their topflight status intact but fell at the last hurdle.

Despite being relegated, the Urban Warriors only lost one match in their last five encounters, winning two and drawing two. Dignity and pride is all they playing for this afternoon.

Amakhosi on the other hand is fighting for the last top eight spot after seven teams were confirmed to have qualified for the MTN8 competition. Chiefs understand anything less than a win would mean they won’t be playing the prestigious Wafa Wafa tournament in the opening season of the 2024/25 term.
