Black Leopards coach out to mastermind more Kaizer Chiefs misery


Johannesburg – Kaizer Chiefs will resume their DStv Premiership campaign when they host Black Leopards at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 19:30.

Amakhosi are revitalised after reaching the CAF Champions League first round after their 1-0 aggregate win over PWD Bamenda side from Cameroon in the preliminary round.

However, Chiefs are winless in their last three DStv Premiership matches.

As a result, they find themselves in 13th place in the league standings with five points from five matches having recorded only one victory (over Chippa United).

Meanwhile, Leopards are faring even worse.

The team suffered their fourth defeat from five league matches this season when they lost 1-0 to Bloemfontein Celtic in their competitive match.

This resulted in them being placed at number 15th in the league standings with three points from five matches and their only win this season came against Maritzburg United last month.

Dylan Kerr, the Leopards head coach, is hopeful that he can put together a team which secure a victory over Chiefs.

“Every player that I know as to what they can do we have to look at them and we organise friendly matches so that we get the best XI to start [against Chiefs],” said Kerr.

“I was encouraged by the changes we made because then we were on the front foot more, but we didn’t hurt Bloemfontein in the end with all the possession that we had in the last 20 minutes.

“I have to look at these players and see what I have. Hopefully, we can go against Kaizer Chiefs and get the three points.”

Kerr was in charge of Baroka FC when they held Chiefs to a 1-1 draw on the final day of last season which saw Mamelodi Sundowns snatch the title.
