Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are relishing the prospect of facing SuperSport United in Saturday's Nedbank Cup quarter-final where they will come up against a number of former Amakhosi stars.

The two teams will meet in the competition on Saturday and it is widely thought to be the pick of the games this round in the tournament.

Chiefs welcome back Bernard Parker for the game, from suspension, while SuperSport are fresh from beating Liberia's Barrack Young Controllers to reach the CAF Confederations Cup group stages.

Nonetheless, the Glamour Boys are looking forward to the tie as they prepare to face a number of former players.

According to the Chiefs official website, Matsatsantsa will walk through the FNB Stadium tunnel with no less than eleven of their personnel who've had the same path with Amakhosi.

These former Chiefs individuals include United's coach Stuart Baxter and trainer Joshua Smith.

From their players goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse, defender Onismor Basera, Tefu Mashamaite, Keagan Ritchie and Morgan Gould.

Their midfielders Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Thuso Phala, Mandla Masango and striker Kingston Nkhatha also were former Amakhosi players.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 18:00.
