Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will be expected to get back to winning ways when they host Edu Sports FC in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.

Amakhosi saw their unbeaten start to the Premiership season come to an end on Tuesday after slumping to a 2-0 defeat at SuperSport United, marking the Soweto giants' first league loss in 20 outings.

Stuart Baxter's men were, however, already knocked out of one cup competition this term after losing on penalties to Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout, although they were crowned MTN8 champions after seeing off Orlando Pirates in the final in September.

Chiefs will now be looking to book their place in the Ke Yona last-16 when they host their Gauteng SAB Regional League opponents at the FNB Stadium this weekend, although Baxter has already admitted he knows very little about the side, which could spell potential trouble for the top-flight leaders.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane could return for the hosts, having missed the loss to Matsatsantsa following the death of his father the day before, while Itumeleng Khune could be handed cup duties after finding himself second-choice behind Brilliant Khuzwayo.

Chiefs have an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from, although Baxter already confirmed he will rotate his squad, given the fact they also have Premiership and CAF Champions League commitments this term.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
