The South African Premier Soccer League is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Kaizer Chiefs take on Marumo Gallants on Sunday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will need to step up this weekend.

Marumo Gallants are currently rooted to the bottom of the South African Premier Division and are yet to win a game in the league. The hosts suffered a 1-0 defeat against Maritzburg United last week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.


Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, are in 13th place in the league table at the moment and have not been at their best this year. The Chiefs were stunned by Royal AM in their previous game and cannot afford a similar debacle in this match.
