Chiefs boss drops Nurkovic hint?

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Gavin Hunt has revealed he may make a couple of changes from the side who made CAF Champions League history in Guinea last week.

Chiefs return to DStv Premiership action against Baroka at the Peter Mokaba Stadium after a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Horoya in Conakry over the weekend.

With only one training sessions since their return, preparation for Bakgaga has been minimum, with Hunt and his troops targeting to climb the table.

"We have not had much time to prepare for the game and Baroka had more than five days to get ready," Hunt told the club's website. "But we are not complaining because I believe it's better to play every three or so days."

With the likes of Samir Nurkovic and Daniel Akpeyi suspended for their final Group C clash in Africa's elite club competition, the rested duo are expected to return to the starting line-up this afternoon.

"There are places we can make changes and there are places we can't," Hunt admitted with Leonardo Castro still ruled out with a broken nose.

"We will look at the team that played in Guinea and maybe make one or two changes for this afternoon’s game if necessary. We will see how it goes after this morning’s review."

Amakhosi are currently in ninth place with 24 points, just one ahead of 12th placed Baroka, albeit Chiefs hold two games in hand over several of their domestic rivals.
