Richards Bay & Chiefs XIs Confirmed

Richards Bay FC and Kaizer Chiefs have announced their starting lineups for their DStv Premiership encounter at King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium.

Relegation-threatened Richards Bay have a chance to rescue their own situation this afternoon when they face struggling Chiefs. But Bay have only won one game in the last seven matches which was a vital win against Moroka Swallows.

The Natal Rich Boys find themselves sitting in the playoff spot just five points above bottom Cape Town Spurs. Vusi Vilakazi side could go eight points clear of Spurs if they get maximum points today.

Amakhosi are on four match winless run following back-to-back defeats against Stellenbosch FC and Chippa United. Chiefs are currently fighting for a spot in the top eight and even possibly CAF inter-club spot.

A win for Chiefs in this match would send them closer to a top-four finish depending on other matches. Chiefs have 30 points after 23 matches.

Today will be the fifth time these two sides playing against each other, Chiefs have won two, Bay won one and one ended with a draw.

Here is how they line up:

Richards Bay XI: Magoola, Ndaba, Mabuya, Mthethwa, Mcineka, Komane, Makhubela, Mhlongo, Muyaba, Barns, Ntsundwana

Subs: Jacobs, Figuaereido, Mbuthuma, Dube, Malepe, Mabua, Mohlamme, Mthembu, Gumede

Kaizer Chiefs XI: Bvuma, Solomons, Hlanti, Dove, Msimango, Mthethwa, Sithebe, Shabalala, Mmodi, Saile, Du Preez

Subs: Petersen, Kwinika, Frosler, Castillo, Zwane, Mashiane, Vilakazi, Gonzalez, Chivaviro
