Chiefs Aim For Second Soweto Derby Double Over Pirates

Kaizer Chiefs reserves have the chance to complete the double over Orlando Pirates in Saturday’s Soweto Derby between both club’s reserves sides.

Chiefs coach Vela Khumalo has stated that his side are aiming to follow in the footsteps of the first team and complete the...

Khanye – Why Chiefs Were Lucky In Soweto Derby

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye has explained why Amakhosi were “very, very lucky” to beat their bitter rivals in Saturday’s Soweto Derby. The Glamour Boys completed the league double over the Buccaneers, thanks to goals by Reeve Frosler and Eric Mathoho, while Kwame Peprah had scored for Pirates.

Kaizer Chiefs forward Bernard Parker has revealed one of his best Soweto Derby experiences and what a win over Orlando Pirates would mean for his side.

Baxter Confirms Chiefs No.1 Amid Petersen, Khune Form

Stuart Baxter has explained that Brandon Petersen has won the form battle for the starting berth in the Kaizer Chiefs goal – at least for now. The Englishman will oversee his third derby of the campaign, after the Carling Black Label Cup, where Itumeleng Khune started before being replaced by Petersen, and the reverse league fixture, which saw Daniel Akpeyi get the nod. In the last two games, Baxter has started Petersen, despite Khune showing convincing performances in the DStv Compact Cup. The Amakhosi coach confirmed on Thursday when asked by...

Davids – Billiat Is An Olympic Diver

Orlando Pirates co-coach Fadlu Davids has accused Khama Billiat of being susceptible of diving ahead of Saturday’s Soweto Derby. Billiat won Amakhosi’s injury-time penalty in the reverse fixture when Kaizer Chiefs beat the Buccaneers 2-1.
