Kaizer Chiefs v AmaZulu

Kaizer Chiefs will be aiming to make it three wins in a row when they host AmaZulu at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Amakhosi have erased memories of a poor start to the season within four days after convincing away wins over Cape Town City and Free State Stars propelled them to fourth on the table.

Before that the pressure was building on new coach Giovanni Solinas after he failed to win any of their first five league games.

But they now appear to be on a role, although attacker Lebogang Manyama is expecting a tough game against the Durbanites.

"They have a good coach in Cavin Johnson," he said. "They are a running team and are difficult to play against. We will have to fight to get the three points."

Usuthu claimed a thrilling 3-3 draw from their last outing against Mamelodi Sundowns, but it was a match they should have won in Umlazi.

The result left the KwaZulu-Natal side ninth on the table. Sadate Ouro-Akoriko and Marc van Heerden are both back in contention but Ovidy Karuru is still out injured and will miss the game against his former side.

Leonardo Castro is an injury doubt for Chiefs, but Eric Mathoho is set to return. Joseph Molangoane remains out with a broken leg.
