Chiefs & CT Spurs Starting XIs Announced

Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town Spurs have announced their starting line-ups for this evening’s DStv Premiership round 11 clash at FNB Stadium.

Chiefs won their last league match on 28 September and have gone over a month without a victory. They are coming into this match after back-to-back league defeats against Cape Town City and Lamontville Golden Arrows, while also being knocked out of the Carling Knockout Cup by AmaZulu, which led to the sacking of Molefi Ntseki.

The Glamour Boys will be without their supporters this evening, as they are serving their one-match stadium lockout following their repeated fan trouble this season. They will also battle without midfielder Sibongiseni Mthethwa, who received his fourth yellow card against Arrows.

Meanwhile, Spurs finally got their first three points of the campaign after defeating Orlando Pirates a week ago. The Cape Town-based side come to this match with a much-needed confidence booster, as they will try to get all maximum points.

The Urban Warriors are sitting bottom of the table, eight points behind Chiefs and three points behind 15th-placed Richards Bay.

These two sides are facing each other for the first time since the club was re-named to Cape Town Spurs.

Overall, Chiefs won three, drew two and lost five DStv Premiership games this season, while Spurs won one and lost eight.

Here is how they line up:

Chiefs XI: Khune, Dove, Frosler, Msimango, Ditlhokwe, Maart, Castillo, Nk. Ngcobo, Shabalala, Dolly, Chivaviro

Subs: Bvuma, Hlanti, Kwinika, Nj. Ngcobo, Zwane, Matlou, Mmodi, Mdantsane, Saile

CT Spurs XI: Ramsbottom, Dortley, Lukhuebeni, Daniels, Haukongo, Moroole, Morton, Nel, Buchanan, Phewa, Moosa

Subs: Dlamini, Mfecane, Baartman, Allie, Ryan, Ralani, Bern, Butsaka
