Kaizer Chiefs' midfielder Sandile Zuke will become the centre of attraction once more when Amakhosi face Jomo Cosmos in a PSL Reserve League game at Eldorado Park Stadium today.

Chiefs' coach Kosta Papic gave the youngster a run last Sunday when Amakhosi played Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nelson Mandela Museum Challenge in Port Elizabeth.

Zuke did not disappoint, scoringthe first penalty for his side during the shootout which Chiefs lost 5-4. Though it is too early to talk about his career, Zuke, who has been promoted from the Under-19 development side, has shown a lot of potential.

The up and coming star played a vital role when Chiefs beat Bidvest Wits in a reserve league match at Milpark Stadium last Wednesday.

PSL reserve league coach, Donald "Ace'' Khuse, said Zuke's performance has been good so far.

Zuke will be supported in midfield by another promising youngster from the Under-19 development team, Sibusiso Msomi. Cosmos' coach Collen Tlemo said they will be fielding players from the Jomo Cosmos Academy.

In another match, Moroka Swallows welcome Wits at Germiston Stadium. Second-placed Orlando Pirates host Benoni Premier United at Johannesburg Stadium (B Field) while Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United meet in a Pretoria derby at Caledonian Stadium.

All games start at 4pm.
