Predictions for Kaizer Chiefs' starting XI in the DStv Premiership against Marumo Gallants

Kaizer Chiefs face Marumo Gallants on Sunday 26 September, looking to rebound from a humiliating defeat to Royal Am last time out.

Here's how the Kaizer Chiefs might line up against the Gallants on Sunday.

KAIZER CHIEFS BEGIN XI

The merry-go-round in the Kaizer Chiefs' goal hasn't helped their cause this season, but after allowing four goals, it's difficult to imagine Brandon Petersen getting another game right away. As a result, we anticipate the return of Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma.

There should also be changes in defence after Stuart Baxter gave Njabulo Ngcobo his Kaizer Chiefs debut only to see him struggle. It would not surprise me if Thabani Dube returned right back.

Despite their thrashing, last time out, Kaizer Chiefs' centre back partnership of Daniel Cardoso and Erick Mathoho seems likely to remain.

Sifiso Hlanti's consolation goal at left-back should be enough to maintain him in the starting lineup, given his main opponent, Sibusiso Mabaliso placed the ball into his net when he came on as a substitute.

Phathutshedzo Nange is a doubtful starter after being stretchered off the field the last time out, so Cole Alexander and Njabulo Blom should be tasked with keeping things calm in midfield.

Nange's injury could also hasten the full return of Lebogang Manyama, who has shown great energy and willingness off the bench.

Khama Billiat, Samir Nurkovic, and Keagan Dolly may be struggling at the moment, but they will almost certainly start against Marumo Gallants.

PREDICTED XI:

Bruce Bvuma, Sifiso Hlanti, Erick Mathoho, Daniel Cardoso, Thabani Dube, Cole Alexander, Njabulo Blom, Lebogang Manyama, Khama Billiat, Keagan Dolly, Samir Nurkovic for Kaizer Chiefs.
