Black Leopards will be hoping to get maximum points from Kaizer Chiefs at Thohoyandou Stadium.
FARPost picks three Lidoda Duvha players capable of helping the home team win.
Lesedi ‘TT’ Kapinga
The 25-year-old has been one of the most exciting players to watch in the Absa Premiership this season and it is not a surprise that there are several teams reported to be enquiring about his survives. He has been influential in most of the Leopards matches and is their current top scorer with 5 goals coupled with 4 assists. He will definitely be a player Chiefs need to look out for otherwise he can hurt them with the defence splitting passes.
The Ghanaian has helped stabilise the Leopards defence since joining in October under then coach Luc Eymael. He has saved Lidoda Duvha several times with his never die attitude and hard tackles at the back. If there is one player at Leopards who can do the dirty job of ensuring that in-form Chiefs strikers Leonardo Castro and Samir Nurkovic are not a threat, Leopards will certainly be relaying on the 28-year-old.
Although the Zambian started the season slowly following the uncertainty over his future, he has once again shown the signs of regaining the form and confidence that made him win 2 top goal scorer awards in 2 consecutive seasons (in the GladAfrica Championship as well as the Absa premiership). Musonda has scored 4 goals this season with 1 assist and will definitely be a player that the Chiefs defence need to keep a close eye on.
