After two CAF Champions League matches, Kaizer Chiefs will shift their focus to domestic football when they host Black Leopards in the DStv Premiership this evening at FNB Stadium.
Amakhosi were last in domestic action against Swallows FC on 24 November, before travelling to Cameroon for the continental competition.
After advancing to the first round of the Champions League, coach Gavin Hunt has decided not to implement too many changes to the team that played the last game on Saturday against PWD Bamenda.
Hunt will bring on Njabulo Blom for Siphelele Ntshangase in midfield and Bernard Parker is replaced by Leonardo Castro.
Skipper Itumeleng Khune will retain his position in goal after keeping two clean sheets in the Champions League matches.
The defence will be made up of Philani Zulu on the left, Daniel Cardoso and Mulomowandau Mathoho in central defence, while Kgotso Moleko will play on the right.
Njabulo Blom, Anthony Akumu Agay, Nkogisigiphile Ngcobo and Lebogang Manyama will be in Amakhosi’s midfield.
Khama Billiat will be joined by Leonardo Castro in attack.
Our match officials for this evening are referee Luxolo Badi, who will be assisted by Thabang Matlhong and Bongani Mnguni. Buhle Jobela is the fourth official.
