Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic captain Bevan Fransman says he is in doubt of Kaizer Chiefs’ defence ahead of their MTN8 semi-final clash on Sunday, August 16.

Fransman admits that it will indeed be a good match against Amakhosi but it is not the easiest draws they have been placed in.

“They have two new players in the heart of their defence who are basically new in [Siyanda] Xulu and [Ivan] Bukenya," he told the PSL official website.

"They conceded three goals which last season you wouldn’t have seen.

“So I still doubt their defence. I am a defender myself and I know that they’ll try and strengthen that area to become more solid.

“I think when it comes to defence, mistakes they do happen, but after that you go to the training grounds to work on those mistakes and try to rectify them as soon as you can.

“It is going to be a good game, though I have to admit it is not the easiest of draws.

“A Chiefs line-up that is capable of scoring five past Maritzburg after being 2-0 down shows that they have some massive fighting spirit and resilience.

“For me we have to go into this game with a certain amount of caution, yet at the same time we have to put one foot in the final by scoring and putting them on the back foot a bit,” the Phunya Sele Sele captain concluded.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
