KAIZER CHIEFS WELCOME BACK DU PREEZ

The official Chiefs website confirmed both Siyethemba Sithebe and Ashley Du Preez were back in full training and they also invited fans to attend the match in numbers.

“The Club has called on all the supporters in Gauteng to come out in numbers and attend the last home match of the year at FNB Stadium wearing their colours,” read an article on the Chiefs website.

KEAGAN DOLLY STILL OUT

Club vice-captain Keagan Dolly and influential central defender Thatayaone Ditlhokwe are still sidelined. The Glamour Boys have won back-to-back PSL clashes for only the second time this campaign, with successes over Moroka Swallows and Polokwane City. Cavon Johnson will be confident they can win a third match on the bounce, against a Richards Bay side with just two wins all season and languishing in 15th place on the log.
