Ekstains makes a return to starting line up against Arrows

Coach Ernst Middendorp has made a few changes to the starting XI compared to Saturday’s 4-2 victory over Chippa United.

Kaizer Chiefs host Golden Arrows tonight in an Absa Premiership fixture.

Some of these changes were forced as both Kabelo Mahlasale and Khama Billiat are out injured. Mahlasela hurt his foot in the first half against Chippa, while the Zimbabwean has a stiff thigh muscle and is therefore given a break to fully recover.

Daniel Akpeyi was cup-tied for the Chippa encounter, but the tall Nigerian is back in goal for the Arrows clash. 

Reeve Frosler will occupy the right wing, while Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya will occupy the opposite flank.

Philani Zulu also comes in and will assist Dax Andrianarimanana in the middle of the park.

Dumsani Zuma, who did so a splendid job coming on for Mahlasela on Saturday, will play in a more offensive role, together with Hendrick Ekstein and Bernard Parker.

The back three for tonight’s game will be Kgotso Moleko, Willard Katsande and Daniel Cardoso.

Some good news from the Amakhosi camp is the return of Joseph Molangoane. ‘Tight’ has been out since the beginning of this season due to a horrific leg injury and will start this match on the bench.

The league game between Chiefs and Arrows will take place at FNB Stadium and will kick off at 19:30. 

The referee is Kulasande Qongqo, assisted by Kenny Mamegwa and John Landella.
