The Kaiser Chiefs hope to cheer up in their 2-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Premier League last Sunday.
The Soweto Giants hosted the Royal Morning at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, eager to recover from their first league defeat of the season.
After the start of the match with TS Galaxy and defeating Baroka FC, the Chiefs suffered a setback in Sundowns and they wanted to make up for it.
Their opponent, Royal, arrived in Gauteng with confidence after winning their first set of points in a 1-0 victory over Chippa United this past weekend.
They may want to annoy Amakoshi now.

Squad and team news
The Kaiser Chiefs still injured Leonardo Castro, which made Samir Nurkovic the only recognizable No. 9 player.
The striker is recovering in his native Colombia after undergoing surgery.
According to head coach Stuart Baxter, defender Siyabonga Ngezana is far from recovering from injury.
Midfielder Dumisani Zuma has begun light training, but has not yet adapted to the game.
Royal AM coach John Maduka has nothing to worry about because none of his players have been suspended.
KwaZulu-Natal’s team came to the FNB Stadium with a complete lineup, which can give the Chiefs a good income.
This is the first time the Chiefs have met with the Durban team as a Royal AM after obtaining the Bloemfontein Celtics PSL status.
But before, the confrontation between Amakosi and the Celtics was usually stormy, and it should be the same on Saturday, because Royal AM has the same players that used to play for Siwelele.
The Royals started the season sluggishly and lost the first two games; 1-0 against Swallows FC and defeated Cape Town City 2-1 at home.
Interestingly, in terms of the number of goals conceded and goals scored so far this season, Amakoshi and Real AM have similar records.
Both sides scored two goals each and lost three goals.
