AmaZulu's 7 ex-Chiefs stars to haunt Amakhosi?


AmaZulu have seven former Kaizer Chiefs stars on their books who could come back to haunt the Amakhosi in Wednesday's DStv Premiership clash.

Usuthu are set to go head-to-head with Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday in a clash that could see Benni McCarthy's eighth-placed charges overtake their Soweto opponents in the DStv Premiership standings.

In order to achieve that, the former Bafana Bafana international could call upon seven former Chiefs stars to get one over their former employers, including Sphelele Mthembu, Hendrick Ekstein, Kgotso Moleko, Philani Zulu, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Tsepo Masilela.

Among them, Keagan Buchanan has featured the most times this season for AmaZulu with eight league appearances to his name and he opened his account for the campaign with a goal directly from the corner flag against Stellenbosch FC last weekend.

Former Chiefs forwards Sphelele Mthembu and Lehlohonolo Majoro have also been regulars and have featured seven times each, while Pule Ekstein, who joined Usuthu following a stint in Azerbaijan, is also a weapon in McCarthy's arsenal.

Philani Zulu and Kgotso Moleko, who both swapped Soweto for Kwa-Zulu Natal at the start of the season, are also options that can be called upon, as is former Bafana Bafana defender Tsepo Masilela, although the latter has been used sparingly this season.

Kick-off is at 17:30.
