GABADINHO MHANGO (PIRATES)

Mhango has not started a match since his impressive showing at AFCON.

However, this could be the game that he is used with Fadlu Davids hinting at his recent performances in training, according to TimesLive. Mhango has only played 29 minutes in six matches since returning from AFCON.

In Africa’s showpiece he scored three goals, as much as Liverpool’s Sadio Mane who’s team (Senegal) went on to win the tournament.

LEONARDO CASTRO (CHIEFS)

Castro made his return off the bench against Baroka FC this past weekend after missing several months of action.

Everyone is expecting Bernard Parker to be selected to partner Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly upfront. However, Castro could be selected to complete Pitso Mosimane’s legacy in the derby with Parker being utilised in the midfield.

SABELO RADEBE (CHIEFS)

Radebe made the crucial (and incredible) assist to Billiat for the winner against Baroka.

Coming off the bench, he produced a moment of brilliance which produced a 95th minute winner for Amakhosi. Radebe has a massive future ahead of him and giving him a chance against Pirates would ignite the Chiefs midfield with creativity and spark.

He could be selected in the midfield ahead after his impact off the bench although this is quite unlikely. Radebe will have many Soweto derby’s ahead of him though, as he is an incredible talent with massive potential.

Who would you like to see earn a surprise start in the Soweto derby?
