PSL preview: Leopards vs Chiefs 05/03/04
Ninth placed Black Leopards will "host" Kaizer Chiefs, who are in third position, at the Soccer City (FNB) Stadium in a Castle Premiership match on Saturday afternoon.

The match was actually scheduled for the Thohoyandou Stadium, but Lidoda Duvha have requested that the game be played in Johannesburg instead, in order for them to make more money from the gate takings.

Putco Mafani, the communications manager of Chiefs, has warned the Limpopo-based side that although they may return with the gate takings, they will certainly not be taking any Premiership points back home.

"I feel sorry for Leopards as they won't know what hit them in this game. Technically, this is they home game and we will make them pay for calling our ground theirs," warned Mafani.

He went on to say that his team needs all three points to close the gap between themselves and the log leaders, Santos. Ted Dumitru's team have played six games less than The People's team.

In the first round game, Leopards were beaten 5-0 and despite the absence of the suspended Jabu Pule and the injured Kabamba Musasa, Chiefs still have plenty of depth and Leopards will remain very much the underdogs.

Dumitru has said that he will not yet unleash his new signing, Collins Mbesuma, the Zambian under 23 international who single handedly destroyed Amaglug-Glug in the Olympic qualifiers as although the player has received his international clearance, he is still waiting for the local PSL paperwork to be processed.

Leopards will be missing midfielder Duncan Lechesa, who is suspended after receiving three yellow cards and also Christopher Netshidzivhe will be out nursing a injury.

Leopards will be looking to their former Chiefs strikers Justice Sithole and Kelvin Mushanghazhike to do the work against their former employees and thereby take the side a step closer to a top eight finish.

At the opposite end of the field Amakhosi striker Sibusiso Dlamini will also be out to score against his former club.

The match starts at 4:00pm at the Soccer City Stadium.
