Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela suggests that he will name an unchanged starting line-up for the Premiership Soweto Derby encounter against Orlando Pirates.

The Soweto giants have embarked on an impressive string of results of a late, which has culminated in a six-game unbeaten spell in all competitions. Since turning the corner on their bad spell - Komphela has primarily opted to field a consistent starting XI, which has relegated veterans such as Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala to the bench.

He told the official PSL website: "The team has been doing well. And we are saying if it ain’t broke, why fix it?

"It’s not only Shabba Tshabalala. You have Tsepo Masilela, who is highly capable and unbelievably experienced, but Sibusiso Khumalo has got a chance.

"Parker is also waiting for his chance. [Lucky] Baloyi got his chance against Maritzburg because George Maluleka is suspended. Keagan Buchanan got his as well. So we are trying to play around with the team, while maintaining harmony," he concluded.

The two sides face off in a league encounter on Saturday, 29 October at the FNB Stadium.
