Fleurs set for a big week with Kaizer Chiefs

Luke Fleurs has been training with the Glamour Boys for over two months but has yet to make an appearance for the club. Interim coach Cavin Johnson sees Fleurs as a potential solution to their defensive woes; they’ve gone seven matches without a clean sheet.

Baptism of fire?

Popular local publication SoccerLaduma believe Fleurs will feature against Cape Town Spurs on Wednesday after joining the club on a free transfer after parting ways with SuperSport. He could also be in line for his first taste of the Soweto Derby this coming weekend. Orlando Pirates eked out a 1-0 win on Tuesday night against Sekhukhune thanks to a goal from marauding right-back Thabiso Monyane. It’s now over to Chiefs to build some momentum ahead of that massive clash at the Calabash on Saturday.
