Kaizer Chiefs to face rotate AmaZulu XI?

accreditation

Chiefs are set to do battle with AmaZulu in the DStv Premiership this weekend when they welcome the Kwa-Zulu Natal-based outfit to the FNB Stadium.

The Amakhosi and Usuthu both go into the encounter on the back of gruelling MTN8 quarter-final fixtures of the weekend in which each team was forced to head into extra-time in order to record wins over Stellenbosch FC and Cape Town City, respectively.

As a result, both teams are expected to ring the changes for this weekend's league encounter and away coach Brandon Truter has admitted that he might be forced to rotate his starting XI.

"We had a tough encounter over the weekend, 120 minutes, and the boys put in a massive shift for that game," Truter said ahead of Saturday's match.

"We have a few tired bodies and a few niggles here and there, but luckily we've had some time to work on it this week and hopefully we will have everyone available for Chiefs this weekend.

"But we will have to look and see who is available, and what we can manage, but in the team at this moment, the quality and depth in the squad and also the atmosphere and unity is fantastic.

"So, going into every match, like I said, we back ourselves whether it is home and away. We will try and get the three points on offer this weekend."

AmaZulu currently occupy third position in the league standings with 10 points from five matches played, four points more than Chiefs who are ninth on the log.
