Back in action to chase a spot in the CAF Champions League, Kaizer Chiefs are unlikely to make too many changes as they look to make it four consecutive victories in the DSTV Premiership for the first time this season.
Amakhosi go into the clash against Stellenbosch on the back of victories against Orlando Pirates, Richards Bay and Martizburg United, and have an opportunity to make a late push in the season for a second place finish, which would give the club bosses and coach Arthur Zwane hope that they have what it takes to challenge for the Premiership title next season, if they improve in certain areas.

For the clash against Stellies at FNB Stadium, Zwane is likely to go with a front three of Keagan Dolly, Christian Saile Basomboli and Ashley du Preez, who all played a key role upfront in the victory over the Team of Choice. Mduduzi Shabalala is back from national under-23 duty and is likely to play behind the front three.

Yusuf Maart scored the winner against Maritzburg from the penalty spot, but he will be serving a one-match suspension, which could give young Samkelo Zwane an opportunity to make a return to the starting line-up for the first time since January, when he featured for the first 45 minutes against log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
Zwane could partner the more experienced Siyethemba Sithebe in the middle of the park, but another option in Maart's absence is George Matlou, who has not quite established himself as a regular since making a move to Naturena from Swallows.
Siyabonga Ngezana is available after serving a one match suspension against Maritzburg and, based on current form, is likely to play alongside Edmilson Dove, with Zitha Kwinika playing at right back ahead of Dillan Solomons.
Possible line-up: Petersen, Kwinika, Ngezana, Dove, Hlanti, Sithebe, Zwane, Shabalala, Dolly, Du Preez, Saile
