Kaizer Chiefs are keen to consolidate a place in the top-eight when they welcome relegation-haunted Chippa United at FNB Stadium for Wednesday’s Premier Soccer League encounter.
Fresh from a come-from-behind win over Mamelodi Sundowns last Sunday, Chiefs are high in confidence and would want to capitalise on that motivating outing and improve their domestic fortunes.
After weeks of struggling to enter the top-eight, Chiefs finally got it right after beating the Brazilians.
They will, however, remain in eighth spot even if they beat Chippa on Wednesday as their nearest rivals at the top, Cape Town City have eight points more than them.
A leaking defence has been Chiefs’ Achilles heel in the PSL this season and only Cape Town City have conceded more goals than Amakhosi among the top eight teams on the league log.
Erick Mathoho’s poor form continued against Sundowns as the former Bafana Bafana central defender was often caught out of position which left the Chiefs defence exposed.
It is time for Hunt to recall Mphahlele into the starting line-up with the new Chiefs captain having overcome his injuries woes and appeared on the bench in the team’s last five competitive games.
Chiefs looked more balanced and stronger in midfield following the introduction of Baccus, who partnered with Njabulo Blom and Amakhosi were able to control the game against Sundowns.
The duo tends to complement each other well in midfield with Baccus having also come on a substitute against Cape Town City, and scored what proved to be Chiefs’ consolation goal last week.
Baccus needs to be recalled to the starting line-up as Chiefs play much better with him partnering Blom in the middle of the park.
