Chiefs face tough test of title defence
Kaizer Chiefs take on Moroka Swallows in the first of the 2004 Coca-Cola Cup semifinals. Chiefs are out to retain their title as Coca-Cola Cup champions when they meet at Securicor Loftus on Saturday.

Swallows beat Bloemfontein Celtic in the first round and progressed to the semifinals by beating Black Leopards 2 - 0 in Thohoyandou.

The Amakhosi beat Golden Arrows in their first round match played in Durban. They then went on to play Dynamos in the quarterfinals making easy meat of the Giyani side with a 4 - 0 hammering.

Kaizer Chiefs have had some problems in their defence of late and it is essential these problems are ironed out against a team of Swallows calibre with the powerful strike force of Dennis Lota and Lungisani Ndlela.

However, the Dube Birds will be under a hefty amount of pressure with Chiefs strike force of David Radebe - who is finding his form again. Not forgetting the lethal Collins Mbesuma, there will be no time for complacency.

Key Players:

Moroka Swallows: Edzai Kasinauyo - Swallows speedy left winger Edzai Kasinauyo can unlock the most experienced defences he will be vital in attacking the Chiefs backline and it wont be an easy task to stop him.

Kaizer Chiefs: David Radebe : Kaizer Chiefs striker David Radebe is looking more like his old self, after a lengthy goal drought he has started to find the back of the net. He held the ball up, creating opportunities for his teammates in their 4 - 0 drubbing of Dynamos, he scored a brace in this game.

Kaizer Chiefs: Ted Dumitru
