Chiefs out to consolidate top spot

Black Leopards will host Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday, 20 February 2013, kick-off at 19h30.

Leopards suffered a fourth loss from their last five league matches when they were beaten 3-1 by Chippa United on the weekend.

The Limpopo team will be looking for just their second home win of the season. They have suffered four defeats from nine home games.

Lidoda Duvha are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with 17 points from 18 matches.

Chiefs returned to the top of the standings on the weekend with a 2-1 home win over Free State Stars.

The Soweto giants have won three of their eight away matches this season, suffering one defeat in the process.

The Amakhosi are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with 39 points from 18 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Leopards and Chiefs have met in 17 league matches since 2001/02.

The Amakhosi have claimed eight wins, Lidoda Duvha five, and there have been four draws.

Leopards do not have a great home record against the Soweto side, with five losses and just two wins from eight matches.

When the teams met earlier this season, Chiefs claimed a 2-1 home win thanks to goals from Parker and Tshabalala.

The clash will also see former Chiefs players, Abbas Amidu and stylish Michael Nkambule coming up against their former teammates, while Kingston Nkhatha should relish an opportunity to renew friendship with his former teammates at Black Leopards
