Kaizer Chiefs travel to Makhulong Stadium to take on PSL newcomers Highlands Park in an Absa Premiership match on Tuesday evening.
Amakhosi have been in fine form of late after a slow start to the new campaign, and currently find themselves in third spot on the log standings having accumulated 13 points from eight matches.
Giovanni Solinas’ charges have recorded three wins in a row, scoring eight goals and conceding just one in the process.
Their last match saw them beat AmaZulu 2-0 at FNB Stadium, with defenders Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Siyabonga Ngezana getting on the scoresheet.
The visitors have also been boosted with news that towering defender Eric Mathoho is back in full training after fully recovering from a groin injury. ‘Tower’ missed Chiefs’ past three matches due to the injury incurred during training.
A win will see the Glamour Boys leapfrog Orlando Pirates into top spot, provided that both second-placed Bidvest Wits and the former fail to pick up maximum points in their respective ties.
Highlands will be aiming to halt Chiefs’ winning streak when they welcome the Soweto giants to the North.
Owen da Gama’s charges narrowly lost their last league match, going down 1-0 away to Free State Stars.
Despite their latest setback, Highlands have already held both Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns to draws in their own backyards.
They held the Ghost to a 1-1 stalemate on the opening day of the league at Orlando Stadium before playing to the same scoreline against the defending PSL champions at Loftus Versfeld.
Former Bucs and Ajax Cape Town striker, Tendai Ndoro, who put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal with the Lions of the North last week, could make his debut for the Tembisa-based club.
The last time these two sides clashed was back in the 2016/17 season.
Amakhosi won both home and away league ties 1-0.
