Cavin Johnson will pick a Kaizer Chiefs team without Given Msimango as they host TS Galaxy in the DStv Premiership on Tuesday night at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

KAIZER CHIEFS TO PLAY WITHOUT GIVEN MSIMANGO

Remember what happened last week when Amakhosi hosted Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB Stadium? The score was 5-1 to Kabo Yellow and they won a record consecutive DStv Premiership title. More so, Kaizer Chiefs lost their defender and captain, Msimango, when he was shown a red card. This means that the 27-year-old from BrakpanGauteng will be out for the next three games.

So who will coach Johnson look to?

Options in central defence:

  • Edmilson Dove
  • Njabulo Ngcobo
  • Thatayaone Ditlhokwe
  • Zitha Kwinika.

Which two central defenders should start aginst the Rockets? Let us know in the comments section below.

NO FNB STADIUM

Meanwhile Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that the TS Galaxy game is going to the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. The game will take place on Tuesday at 19:30.

Full statement:

“Following their loss against league champions Mamelodi Sundowns at FNB Stadium on Thursday evening, Kaizer Chiefs will have a chance to redeem themselves at home against TS Galaxy on Tuesday evening. The clash will be hosted at the Club’s alternative venue, which is the New Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane,” the club reported.

“[Kaizer] Chiefs have four games left this season and the mission is to collect maximum points from those matches so as to cement a top 8 finish when the season ends on 25 May.

“Duels between Chiefs and Galaxy have always been interesting to watch and produced a lot of entertainment, unpredictability and good football for supporters since the first meeting in 2019.

“With Galaxy having won the first round encounter at Mbombela stadium back in August, Amakhosi will try at all costs try to come back with a victory in the second round match.

“Galaxy will rely on a number of players who once donned the Chiefs jersey for experience and information – they include Bernard Parker, Samir Nurković and Amakhosi’s development product, Puso Dithejane. The Glamour Boys will, however. do their best to ensure that they stop Galaxy and score the goals that will get them maximum points.

“Chiefs are still 8th on the DStv Premiership standings, having gained 33 points in their previous 25 matches. The visiting team are in position 5, after picking up 38 points in their 25 outings,” the note concluded.
