“Amakhosi are big and have quality players”

Maritzburg United captain Nazeer Allie does not think Kaizer Chiefs will miss their suspended players when they meet in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday.

The two sides will clash in Mpumalanga in the semifinal and Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp will be without three suspended players who have been key to their run of good form in Daniel Akpeyi, Erick Mathoho and Willard Katsande.

Allie, speaking with media at Harry Gwala Stadium on Tuesday building up the game, said Amakhosi have enough players to still put out a formidable team.

“No [they won’t struggle]‚ they have a big squad,” he said.

“They have quality players who can just come in and fill the positions. For me‚ Chiefs are a big team‚ they have quality players on their bench who can come in and take any position.”

The three suspensions could give players such as the fit-again Kearyn Baccus or those who have not been playing such as Ghanaian midfielder James Kotei a chance to play from the kick-off, which is at 15h00 on Sunday.
