Chiefs welcome back Saile while Ngezana is suspended

By Neo Poho

Kaizer Chiefs will be without in-form defender Siyabonga Ngezana for their clash against Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday evening.

Ngezana received his fourth booking of the season on Sunday when Chiefs won 2-1 against Casric Stars in the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup.

The Sebokeng born player has been rock solid for Amakhosi lately making 7 consecutive appearances for Chiefs including the 2-0 victory in the Nedbank Cup last 32 against Maritzburg United where he walked home with the man of the match accolade.

While Ngezana is serving his suspension, Christian Saile will return to the team and should be available for selection after serving a one match suspension.

Kaizer Chiefs' trip to the Harry Gwala Stadium comes after the Glamour have enjoyed some good run in the league following three consecutive wins in the league and Nedbank Cup respectively.

With Chiefs having already beaten Maritzburg United before in the league and Nedbank Cup, they will be aiming to make it a treble of wins over the Team of Choice on Saturday and move up the DStv log table where they currently sit in fourth position, with 34 points after 22 matches. 

Meanwhile Maritzburg, who are fighting for their lives, are second from bottom, with 21 points after 22 encounters.

Kick-off at the Harry Gwala is at 20:00
