Kaizer Chiefs’ DStv Premiership clash with Black Leopards has been moved from Tuesday to Wednesday to give the Soweto side additional time to prepare.

CHIEFS’ AFRICA CAF DREAM STILL ALIVE

This follows the switch of Chiefs’ CAF Champions League clash with Cameroon side PWD Bamenda from Friday to Saturday after the late arrival in the country of their opponents.

Amakhosi were held to a 0-0 draw in that game, but advanced 1-0 on aggregate and will now meet Angolan side Primeiro de Agosto in the next round.

They have been given an extra 24 hours by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to get ready for Leopards’ visit to the FNB Stadium where they will hope to claim just a second victory of the season in what has been a tough start to the league campaign.

Clashes between these two have been tight affairs of late.

The last two home meetings for Chiefs against Leopards have been won 1-0 by Amakhosi, while matches in Limpopo in the past two seasons have ended 1-1.

New Leopards coach Dylan Kerr was in charge of Baroka FC last season as they broke Chiefs’ hearts on the final day of the campaign with a 1-1 draw that handed the league title to Mamelodi Sundowns.

CHIEFS ALREADY 9 POINTS BEHIND SUNDOWNS

Chiefs find themselves down in 13th spot in the standings, albeit having played one fewer match than the majority of their rivals.

Worryingly though, they are already nine points behind defending champions and current log-leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns.

Black Leopards are faring even worse, down in 15th-place with just three points from their opening five matches of the season.
