Chiefs players to watch v Swallows


Pressure is mounting on last season runners-up Kaizer Chiefs to start collecting points if they are to stand any chance of winning the inaugural DStv Premiership title.

Amakhosi are winless in their last four matches, in all competitions and are currently 11th on the league log with 5 points.

But a win against Swallows at Dobsonville Stadium on Tuesday night (19:30) can see them climb seven places, within the top four.

FARPost looks at some of the key players to watch for Chiefs tonight.

Nkosingiphile Ngcobo

The SA U23 international has become an important player under Coach Gavin Hunt since the beginning of the season, playing in seven games in all competitions. The 21-year-old has shown signs that he has all the attributes to become a star for the Glamour Boys. He was named Man of the Match during Chiefs 1-0 win against Chippa United last month.

Khama Billiat

The Zimbabwean international is starting to show some glimpses of why he is regarded as one of the best players in the League. The 30-year-old has been unfortunate not to convert some of the goal scoring chances but the two assists against Golden Arrows in the last match (2-2) would be a morale booster for him.

Leonardo Castro

The two goals against Golden Arrows on Saturday will definitely be a confidence booster for the Colombian. The 31-year-old will be a handful for the Dube Birds defence this evening and certainly one of the key players for Amakhosi.

The match will start at 19:30.
