Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they face Jomo Cosmos at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday eveving.

Steve Kompehela has come under severe criticism from fans after after three consecutive losses have left their season in tatters.

The Glamour boys Nedbank Cup exit to Orlando Pirates, their unlikelihood of defending their Premiership title as they trail league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns by 13-points and starring at the brink of a CAF Champions league first round exit after losing at home 1-0 to ASEC Mimosas this weekend has left the former Maritzburg United boss feeling the heat.

Cosmos will also be feeling the pressure as their fight for survival continues, a 5-0 drubbing by Orlando Pirates on Saturday evening will have dented morale in the Ezenkosi camp, which have prided themselves on defensive solidity this season.

Jomo Sono will be without left-back Cheslyn Jampies who will start off his three-match suspension after his red card against Orlando Pirates and Komphela will have to make do without influential midfielder Willard Katsande who's serving a one match suspension due to an accumulation of four yellow cards.

With a lack of goal scorers in the team, the situation looks dire for Jomo Sono - given the fact relegation rivals University of Pretoria and Martizburg United have found some form of late.

A win for Amakhosi could see them move up to third place at the expense of Platinum Stars, while a win for Cosmos would see them leapfrog AmaTuks into 14th and out of the relegation play-off spot.

When the two sides met earlier this year they played out to a goalless draw, a result only Sono would probably be happy with come Tuesday evening.
