Can Billiat do Bafana a favour

Bafana

Kaizer Chiefs talisman Khama Billiat could do Bafana Bafana a favour as The Warriors face Ghana in a World Cup qualifier.

The Warriors come up against Ghana in Harare this afternoon at 15:00 chasing their first win of Group G following away defeats to Ethiopia and Ghana after an opening draw at home against Bafana.

After missing the 3-1 loss in Ghana due to suspension, Billiat will be back in the starting line-up against the Black Stars to provide attacking options alongside Knowledge Musona.

Billiat will be aiming to put in an improved display with his club fortunes underwhelming so far this season despite scoring two goals from seven games to date.

The earlier kick-off in Harare will be of particular interest to Hugo Broos who will be hoping Ghana drop points to boost Bafana's chances of finishing as Group G winners before a tough trip to Ghana in their last group encounter.

"If we win tomorrow [against Ethiopia] and we are a little lucky that there is something happening in the other game we can have more points in front of our opponents and that maybe a victory against Zimbabwe here can give us the first place," said Broos.

Should The Black Stars fail to take all points against The Warriors and Bafana win at home to Ethiopia it will leave Broos' men enjoying an advantage of at least three points heading into the last two group games.

After playing Ethiopia this evening, Bafana will then host Zimbabwe next month before travelling to Ghana on the last day.
