Team News, Stellenbosch vs Kaizer Chiefs Lineups, and Latest Match Information
The home team has one of the longest-serving coaches in the league with Steve Barker joining the club six years ago. The team is still searching for its identity this season with wins and losses coming in both home and away games. There are two apiece on either side. Defending has been an issue for Stellenbosch who are barely on the positive side when it comes to the overall goal difference. But, for now, they are on the top side of the standings in this early phase of the campaign.
Provisional lineup: Masuluke, Toure, Moloisane, van Rooyen, Basadien, Mthethwa, Palace, Adams, Reyners, Titus, Sibande.
Both of Kaizer Chiefs' losses came in away games, but one of those was against the champions Mamelodi Sundowns. Similarly to their opponent, the visiting side needs to figure out how they want to defend and games against teams like Stellenbosch are the ones that could give them a glimpse at their final standings for the rest of the season. Edmilson Dove and Keagan Dolly are unavailable at this time due to health issues, but for coach Molefi Ntseki, it is important to have some of his more prominent players available like the winger Pule Mmodi who leads the team in scoring during this young season.
Provisional lineup: Peterson, Ditlhokwe, Msimango, Kwinika, Hlanti, Maart, Castillo, Mdantsane, Du Perez, Potsane, Mmodi.
Player to Watch: Jayden Adams
The young attacking midfielder is the product of Stellenbosch's youth system. He joined the senior squad three years ago after going through a training regimen with the reserve squad. He leads the team in scoring this campaign with a couple of goals to his credit.
The 22-year-old has shown potential to be a future of the South Africa Premier Soccer League and with the way he is developing, Stellenbosch will be happy to see him grow into a good player especially when it comes to the fact that their academy is raising its profile by developing someone like Adams.
Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
