Chiefs confirm 18-man squad

CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed their 18-man squad set to travel to Burkina Faso to face Wydad Atheltic Club in the CAF Champions League.

Chiefs are set to finally face Wydad this weekend after the Moroccan giants arranged with the Burkinabe Football Federation to have the match hosted in the nation's capital Ouagadougou.

Amakhosi opened their Champions League group stage campaign on Tuesday with a goalless stalemate at home to Guinean outfit Horoya, while WAC registered a 1-0 win away to Petro de Luanda in Angola.

Gavin Hunt will take 18 players on the trip to West Africa, for which they will depart via a charted flight on Friday ahead of this Sunday evening's clash.

Hunt has made just one change to the squad that faced Horoya, with Yagan Sasman left out in favour of Darrel Matsheke, who returns for the first time since picking up a red card in their DStv Premiership defeat to AmaZulu last week.

Kick-off is set for 18h00 (SA time), with the Soweto giants set to jet back into Johannesburg on Monday ahead of their following encounter at home to Petro on Saturday, 6 March.

Full squad: Akpeyi, Khune, Cardoso, Frosler, Mphahlele, Ngezana, Zulu, Akumu, Blom, Matsheke, Katsande, Ngcobo, Manyama, Baccus, Kambole, Nurkovic, Parker, Castro.
