Kaizer Chiefs will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership when they welcome Golden Arrows to the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

BET ON CHIEFS TO WIN
The Glamour Boys have not lost a league game in four games since their defeat to Royal AM, playing to a goalless draw against Cape Town City followed by a narrows 1-0 win over Baroka before clinching a 2-1 win over Pirates last time out.
Amakhosi currently sit in third place on the log table with 35 points, 16 points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after they conceded just four defeats, won 10 and played out to five draws in 19 matches.
