Zwane will have to get creative when selecting his attack as Amakhosi seek redemption against the side that knocked them out of the MTN8 two seasons ago. However, they will have to do so with a makeshift attack.
Ashley Du Preez is still sidelined while new recruit Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana will not be available.

This is because he still needs to obtain his work permit, according to SoccerLaduma.
“We still going to miss Ashley who is going to be out for some time,” Zwane told journalists at a Media conference on Thursday.

That means that Zwane has no out-and-out striker available against a side that is yet to concede.
Goals win matches and Amakhosi are desperate to win after their humiliating 4-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns last weekend. To make matters worse, even Khama Billiat might not be available as he is currently battling with flu.

“Khama has got a bout of flu, we don’t know whether he is going to be available or not. We’ll see how he responds between today and tomorrow,” Zwane confirmed.
It is a nervous wait over the next 24 hours to see if he is available.

Should Billiat be unavailable, Zwane and Dillon Sheppard will have to dig deep into their squad to find replacements. Kgaogelo Sekgota is a worthy option out wide but Amakhosi do not have a natural striker. It will be interesting to see what decision Zwane and the Chiefs make.
