Ivan Bukenya and Simphiwe Mtsweni are making their debuts for Kaizer Chiefs in the Macufe Cup against Bloemfontein Celtic. Click here for both team line-ups.
The 21-year-old Ugandan defender signed for Amakhosi only recently, and fans have been eager to see him in action.
In the absence of Itumeleng Khune, Josta Dladla has been handed the captain's armband.
Celtic are also missing their regular number-one, Patrick Tinyemb, with former Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Thembalethu Moses being given a rare start.
Brilliant Khuzwayo is between the sticks for Chiefs, while young fullback Simphiwe Mtsweni makes his debut.
Mandla Masango and Mulomowandau Mathoho, who both told KickOff.com they were eager for some game-time in the Macufe, have been granted their wish, but Stuart Baxter has decided not to start with Morgan Gould.
Celtic line-up: Moses, Leonard, Motlhaping (c), Ndlovu, Mahoa, Duiker, Nyatama, Ntanga, Jooste, Mutuma, Lamola
Chiefs line-up: Khuzwayo, Moleko, Mathoho, Bukenya, Mtsweni, Dladla (c), Baloyi, Nkosi, Rusike, Masango, Nkhatha
