Amakhosi travel to Bloemfontein to face Bloemfontein Celtic in the first leg of the MTN8 Cup semifinal on Sunday.

“We are going for a win on Sunday,” says a confident Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela ahead of the team’s trip to the Free State. “We are traveling with one aim in mind, and that’s a win.”

“Bongani Ndulula and Siphelele Mthembu make welcome returns from injury,” Komphela confirms the duo’s return to bolster the strike force, before adding, “We have to find a solution in the goal scoring department.”

Chiefs played to a goalless draw in their first Absa Premiership match of the season against Chippa United, which had to play the entire second half with only 10-men due to one of their players being red-carded in the first half.

Amakhosi paved their way through to the semis of the MTN8 thanks to a 5-3 win over Maritzburg United after extra time, while Celtic beat Mamelodi Sundowns on penalties to reach the semifinals.

Lucky Baloyi is also back from injury and available for selection. Morgan Gould and Daniel Cardoso, however, are still making their way back to full fitness.

“Sula Matovu has received his work permit and will travel with the squad,” adds Komphela. The recently signed Ugandan can play on both wings.
