Kaizer Chiefs get their 2024 Nedbank Cup journey underway this afternoon when they host second tier side Milford.

The Glamour Boys are desperately trying to end their nine year trophy drought, and their last viable option of doing that this season is in the Nedbank Cup!

Milford currently sit in 12th position on the Motsepe Foundation Championship log standings. The KwaZulu-Natal side have picked up just 20 points from 19 matches so far this season.

Don’t expect to see many changes to Cavin Johnson’s Kaizer Chiefs starting line up. The Amakhosi coach won’t be using today’s clash to ‘experiment’ with his side!

“Apart from unavailable players, we have a strong squad and are not taking our opponents lightly simply because they play in the NFD. We are well aware of the potential for an embarrassing upset, and we do not want that.” – Johnson told the Kaizer Chiefs website.

“We have picked a team that we believe will win this match. As a team, the players and technical staff, we feel a strong sense of unity and we have all made a pledge to each other to give everything to win this trophy for our fans.”

Action at the FNB Stadium in tonight’s Nedbank Cup clash gets underway at 18:00. The match will be televised live on SuperSport PSL.

Unfortunately for most fans, tonight’s match won’t be televised by the public broadcaster, SABC.

Kaizer Chiefs star Given Msimango has urged the club’s fans to remain patient amidst a nine year trophy drought.

The Glamour Boys have one last chance to win a trophy this season in the form of the Nedbank Cup after falling out of the league title race.

Take a look at what newly signed defender Given Msimango had to say about the player’s desire to end the lengthy trophy drought at Naturena below.


“Our supporters know all too well that it has been a long time since the Club has won silverware.” Given Msimango said as quoted by SoccerLaduma.

“I don’t want to sound like a broken record telling them it is a process, and they must be patient. Which in all honesty is true, but as players we try to focus on the controllable.

“That is to focus on your game and giving the best performance possible to entertain the fans, because that is what they expect from Kaizer Chiefs. We want to win every match we play and thereby get the rewards our supporters deserve.”
