Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane has hinted at how he plans to utilize his key players ahead of the game against TS Galaxy.
Chiefs welcomed back Khama Billiat from an injury lay-off, as he came off the bench after replacing Kgaogelo Sekgota in the narrow defeat against Chippa United.

Zwane reflected once more on the defeat to the Chilli Boys and says he hopes they continue where they left off in terms of creating chances.
"It’s one game we all know we want to forget as soon as possible. If you watch the game again, you look at the chances missed and the goals we conceded it was manna from heaven," Zwane said on the club's official website.
"I think our keeper had only one save for the entire 90 minutes, except for the own goal and the other goal that deflected off two players then fell into their path. Luck was on their side on the day.
"But when it comes to us, we will continue where we left off, in terms of trying to create goalscoring opportunities and making sure this time around we tighten our screws at the back and don’t concede too easily."

Zwane went on to suggest that some players could be rested ahead of their MTN8 semi-final second leg against AmaZulu over the weekend.
"We played Khama Billiat last week and seems ready to give us more minutes. We have some players who have played a lot of games and we may look at resting some them ahead of the weekend’s cup semi-final. We need all our soldiers available for that one," he said.
Zwane could possibly rest Sekgota in favour of Billiat starting, to have the former Swallows winger fresh in the crucial cup encounter, with a place in the final at stake.
'Mangethe' has already a made similar big call regarding their attack after dropping Keagan Dolly to the bench, despite having Billiat injured.
Dolly raised his hand once again with goals from the bench and was recalled into the line-up.

Zwane could be looking to get the same response from Sekgota should he rest him against the Rockets.
There remains, however, a question mark on whether all three of Billiat, Dolly and Sekgota, arguably their best creative players can all be involved in the starting line-up.
Because if they all start, will Zwane have an impact player, from an attacking perspective, to change the game off the bench?
Can Billiat, Dolly and Sekgota start at the same time? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
