Amakhosi have sent only 13 players for their CAF Confedration Cup second leg match and head coach Stuart Baxter has stayed in South Africa to prepare his first-team players for their next League match.

"We were well received in Abidjan but the negative part is that we weren't allowed to train at the venue today where the match will take place," Chiefs communications manager Vina Maphosa tells KickOff.com.

"Other than that the training facilities were in perfect condition and the players are looking forward to the game. Our assistant coach Doctor Khumalo is prepared to guide the boys through this tie."

On the absence of Baxter, Maphosa adds: "He was left behind because he has to prepare players that are left behind knowing we have a strong case on our hands to do in the League.

"He has to prepare the players for the match against Free State Stars coming up. Here it is not our focus, and we are just here to finish this with these players."

Chiefs XI vs ASEC: Pieterse, Moleko, Mtsweni, Gould (c), Bukenya, Baloyi, Maluleka, Cele, Nkosi, Rusike, Masango Bench: Khuzwayo, Gordinho Coach: Doctor Khumalo
