Another deflating Soweto Derby loss for Kaizer Chiefs and the exit at the semifinal stage of another cup competition highlights the growing crisis at Naturena that threatens to turn the once mighty Glamour boys into one of the 'also-rans' of the Premier Soccer League.

The scoreline might only have been 2-1 in their latest defeat to Orlando Pirates, the first time in history that The Buccaneers have won three games on the bounce against their bitter rivals, but the margin on the field was much greater...

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande says the fact that Telkom Knockout quarterfinal opponents SuperSport United will be missing key players, when the teams clash in Durban on Sunday, won't make them any less of a threat.

Chiefs have not won any of their last eight meetings with SuperSport, and in that time have been knockout out of the MTN8 twice, including this season, and the Nedbank Cup by Matsatsantsa.

They will be desperate not to make it a hat trick of domestic cup failures against the...
