Orlando Pirates takes a short trip to Durban for a league fixture against Maritzburg United tonight. The Buccaneers have collected seven points out of possible nine after winning two and drew one of the three games they’ve played thus far.
It was a night of celebration for Kaizer Chiefs as the team recorded their first victory of the 2017/18 season, while a milestone was achieved by the defensive midfielder, Willard Katsande, who made his 200th appearance for Amakhosi. The Zimbabwean international spoke out and mentioned that he would want to add his name to the history books of the club and become a Glamour Boy legend.
The Orlando Pirates defence has been under the spotlight recently. Last season, the backline played a major part in the lacklustre performance of the Buccaneers, however, there seem to be some positive changes.
Cape Town City’s 100% win record came to an abrupt end as Kaizer Chiefs finally secured a much-needed victory. Amakhosi’s Siphiwe Tshabalala and Wiseman Meyiwa both netted to earn Steve Komphela’s team three points.
Cape Town City head coach Benni McCarthy spoke out ahead of his team's clash against Kaizer Chiefs tonight, saying that he is fully focused on his preparations for the encounter and that the Citizens did not have much to look at as Chiefs have only played two matches so far.
Kaizer Chiefs are playing Cape Town City tonight, and they look a little bit thin at the back following Erick Mathoho's suspension and injuries to Tsepo Masilela, Sbusiso Khumalo, Rama Mphahlele and Teenage Hadebe.
