Kaizer Chiefs play the first of a controversial trio of “home” matches at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night‚ seeking to bounce back from a midweek Telkom Knockout final loss to Mamelodi Sundowns with a tough assignment against Premier Soccer League leaders Bidvest Wits. It is a two-fold assignment for the club — they have to win to keep their league hopes on track and cut down on the eight point lead that Wits have over them. They also have to justify‚ in terms of the crowd attendance‚ the money that the Cape Town City Council to shift Chiefs’ matches from Johannesburg to the Mother City. The decision has been criticised by home club Ajax Cape Town‚ who are angry that Chiefs are “infringing” on their market and taking away money they feel should be spent on them. “It is important that we get a good crowd because it is a business arrangement but it is an opportunity for the fans to show how much they appreciate us being here‚” said marketing manager Jessica Motaung on Thursday.

Chiefs held a rallying press conference to market the game but with beleaguered coach Steve Komphela missing from Thursday afternoon’s event‚ his absence left unanswered questions about what will their tactics be for the game. “Wits are a different outfit to Sundowns‚ so our approach will be a lot different. There probably will not be too many changes but there will be some‚” said assistant coach Doctor Khumalo somewhat ambiguously.

Komphela and his players stayed behind in Durban before flying to Cape Town on Thursday night‚ but defender Morgan Gould was sent ahead to deal with the media. His surprise return to the line-up for the cup final backfired as Chiefs battled without injured Mulomowandau Mathoho and got repeatedly caught out in defence. “The result has been hard to swallow. It was never going to be easy. Each game that Chiefs play is a cup final. People come guns blazing at you. It’s (Wits) a very good side we are playing against but what better way to climb up the league than win on Saturday‚” said Gould.

While Chiefs have little recovery time‚ Wits will be playing their first game in almost a month since coming back in the closing stages to clinch a thrilling 3-2 win over Lamontville Golden Arrows in their last game on November 21. They have won four of their last five league games and are unbeaten in the league since Sundowns beat them 4-2 in August. – TMG Digital
