Moleko starts for Chiefs

Posted: 5 February 2014 Time: 13:16

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter is set to hand Kgotso Moleko his first start of the season when the log leaders take on SuperSport United tonight.

Amakhosi have a tricky selection dilemma at left-back following an injury to Tsepo Masilela and the departure of Keegan Ritchie to SK Slavia Prague.

KickOff.com can reveal that Moleko is in line to play his first match of the season, while Siboniso Gaxa is likely to fill the void at left-back.

Baxter had in fact thought of playing the infamous three centre-backs – Mulomowandau Mathoho, Morgan Gould and Tefu Mashamaite – but has opted instead to go with Moleko at right-back and Gaxa at left-back, with Gould and Mashamaite in central defence.

Meanwhile, Kingston Nkhatha, who suffered a concussion against Moroka Swallows on January 31 at Dobsonville Stadium, will miss the match as he is being rested.

However, Chiefs welcome back Bernard Parker, who missed the match against the Dube Birds as a precaution after he picked up a knock at training.

Kick-off for the League match at Peter Mokaba Stadium is 19:30.

What I'm sure about is cavin Johnson is going to expose their shaky defense this afternoon....gaxa is already starting to fail at right back so what the hell is he going to do at the left back? thanx in advance mr transition for giving supersport 3 points.

Thando G  Good on the ball, but too slow, won't be able to chase after a pacy attacker.

Haibo!! Morena Tiyani why are you giving us half a team. What about the other positions? What about killer? Will he be available for selection, starting, bench, stands?

Paula12  Ya because Gaxa usually overlaps and fails to return in time to defend, but Baxter knows better, let us just wait and see....shaky defence?? you mistake us for Pirates
