Chiefs seek redemption against newcomers TS Galaxy

Kaizer Chiefs will go in search of a better home showing in the DStv Premiership when they host TS Galaxy at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday 4 November 2020.

Kick-off at 19h30.

Chiefs claimed their first win of the league campaign on October 27 when they defeated Chippa United 1-0 in Port Elizabeth, thanks to an own goal from defender Gregory Damons.

Amakhosi’s last home match in the DStv Premiership, however, was a nightmare for the Soweto giants as they succumbed 0-3 against champions Mamelodi Sundowns on the opening weekend. This past weekend, they suffered further set-back when they lost 3-0 to Orlando Pirates in the MTN8.

TS Galaxy claimed their first top-flight win when they defeated AmaZulu 1-0 at home on October 28, with a first-half strike from Wayde Lekay proving decisive.

The Rockets’ only away game thus far in the 2020-21 season saw them claim a 1-1 draw at fellow rookies Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on October 25.

In head-to-head stats, this will be the first top-flight league meeting of Kaizer Chiefs and TS Galaxy. However, the latter claimed a famous 1-0 victory over the Amakhosi in the final of the Nedbank Cup in May 2019.

Chiefs’ line-up from their 1-0 win over Chippa on October 27: Akpeyi, Frosler, Cardoso, Ngezana, Zulu, Baccus (Katsande 88'), Blom, Ngcobo (Mphahlele 90+2'), Manyama, Billiat, Castro (Parker 74').

Galaxy’s line-up from their 1-0 win over AmaZulu on October 28: Van der Linde, Bodibe, Msimango, Fransman (Modisane 45'), Seedat, Mbunjana, Ndlovu (Aubaas 65'), Mogaila (Barns 65'), Tshepe (Letsholonyane 78'), Mbatha, Lekay (Macuphu 65').
